Port Services

Project Packaging Services

Nefab is a leading provider of Project Packaging Services out of our Port Facilities in Hamburg and Los Angeles.

Our Port Facilities

Millions of products are shipped around the globe every day. An efficient supply chain will result in secure and effective packaging solutions to avoid higher transportation costs.
Our Port Facility locations offer complete packaging solutions for your products. As a complete packaging solutions provider, we have several types of outer packaging alternatives, such as skids, boxes, and crates. Outer packaging is combined with carefully selected inner packaging available to protect against shock and extreme temperatures during transportation.

Hamburg

Nefab's Hamburg facility is located in the Port of Hamburg. The facility operates various heavy fork lifts and reach stackers and offers lifting capacities of 45 tons. The site has road and rail connection.

Our goal is to make cargo consolidation easier for you.

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:

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.
