• Material Receipts
• Digital Photographs
• Quality Checks
• Inventory Control
• Packing List
• Outdoor and Indoor Storage Facilities

Our goal is to make cargo consolidation easier for you.

Packaging Design and Engineering

Our custom packaging solutions are designed to safely and securely transport your products in a timely and efficient manner, at the lowest cost possible. We serve a wide range of industries, including energy, oil and gas, aerospace, healthcare, telecommunications, and vehicles.
Nefab will design a personalized industrial packaging solution based on your specific requirements and needs. To achieve this, we use a state-of-the-art 3D software to create a unique custom packaging design. Our engineers will find the best materials to protect your cargo during transport, by using things such as protective cushioning to ensure maximum protection.

Benefits of Custom Designed Packaging
• Performance: using the wrong size crate can be disastrous during transportation and can damage your merchandise. Damage risk is significantly higher when the products are not secured properly.
• Savings: our custom designed packages will help you cut down on logistics expenses, as we consider all aspects of transportation in the design process.
• Image: a product well packaged will reflect well on you, as a supplier.
• Collapsibility: the majority of Nefab's export and returnable packaging is designed to be tool-free and collapsible, for easy storing and transportation – saving you invaluable time and money.

Packaging Products

Our wide range of packaging products are optimized to reduce our customers' total costs while minimizing their environmental impact. We offer three types of packaging.

Expendable Packaging
Nefab manufactures its own custom-designed crates, boxes, corrugated, and pallets or skids of any and all sizes to fit your transportation needs. Below are a few of many options for packaging your goods:
• Custom Crates
• Custom Corrugated
• ExPak
• ExPak XL
• Heavy Duty
• Wood Crates
• CreatePak O

Returnable Packaging
being conscious about how our products affect the environment is one of our most important goals here at Nefab. In many cases, the packaging applications can benefit from a reusable solution. We use wood, metal, laminate, or plastic to build our packaging materials.
Our engineers use a software called RECO during the design process. When filled with the correct data, it can help us formulate optimal packaging solutions for your specific needs – for example, the number of reusable wood crates needed for different cycles of your logistics flow.
Nefab returnable packaging includes:
• RePak
• LogPak
• Steel

Additional Packaging
as part of our Complete Packaging Solutions, Nefab can also source and supply inner packaging and accessory products to be used with the outer packaging for additional protection. You can benefit from the following additional packaging services we have available:
• Corrosion protection
• Cushioning
• Blocking and void filling
• Electro Static Discharge (ESD) products

Packaging Services

Nefab also offers different packaging solutions, depending on the distance involved in transporting your products. In-house Packing can be used when short distance transportation doesn't present a risk to the products we package. In this case, many of our customers prefer if their cargo is packaged by our excellent staff, in-house. On-site Packaging is generally used when the products are too large or fragile to be transported to our facility for packaging.
