Original Press Release:

A New Way to Crate: SnapCrate's Light Duty Crate

SnapCrate is a wooden shipping crate system that utilizes patented  “Snap and Insert” technology rather than nails, screws, or banding. This technology makes a SnapCrate reusable while introducing a variety of warehouse efficiencies. Because of their design, SnapCrates typically take about 1/5th the time to assemble and disassemble as a typical crate, significantly reducing the cost of labor.

The new Light Duty Crate utilizes the same “Snap and Insert” technology, but has a modified panel design, reducing the initial cost of the crate an average of 30%. This reduced initial price now makes SnapCrate available as a single-use solution to businesses that do not have the ability to have their crates returned. Manufacturing companies will now be able to reduce costs of labor, maintenance, and disposal, while also taking up a smaller warehouse footprint. SnapCrate will start taking orders for the Light Duty Crate on January 14, 2013.

Everywhere the Light Duty Crate goes it adds efficiency and reduces costs through reduced labor time, eliminating tool-operating costs, reducing warehouse footprint, and creating an overall safer, organized environment. The Light Duty Crate has the potential to reduce typical crate users costs by 5%.
