Customizable solutions reduce freight costs by maximizing number of parts per truckload

Steel King Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of material handling products and systems for improving operational efficiency, announces a diverse line of highly customizable shipping racks, ideal for reducing damage and loss when shipping fragile vehicle parts for final vehicle assembly. Steel King’s custom shipping racks help users “cube out” a trailer, maximizing the number of parts that can be handled in each truckload. This can significantly reduce freight costs. The racks also cut costs associated with disposable pallets. Shipping racks and containers can often be designed with collapsible sides to allow empty racks to reduce space and freight costs on the return trip.

From steering wheels, mirrors, and fenders to engines and transmissions, Steel King builds racks that maximize trailer space by using a variety of stacking or space-saving designs. In addition to the steel-framed racks, Steel King designs all dunnage needed to cradle, cushion, or support the parts and integrates the dunnage into the rack.
