Landing Gear

Customer Case: Packaging for Landing Gear

The customer is a world leader in the design, development and supply of high value aircraft landing gear systems. They ship systems to European destinations from Canada.  The customer was experiencing damages, high transportation costs, and increasing handling costs at both ends of the logistics flow.  

Our solution:

Nefab's packaging design team engineered a solution that would result in damage-free transportation, lower transportation costs and decreased handling time.  The solution took into account weight distribution load characteristics, and utilized custom support dunnage that tied the landing gear to the base of the package.  Using a nail-less crate system also eliminated the need for nails or screws.

Customer benefits:

  • Eliminated shipping damage
  • Lowered shipping costs due to lighter weight packaging system
  • Improved ergonomics and safety by eliminating the need for nail guns
