Anniversary Marks 23 Years in Business for Craters & Freighters

Successful packing solutions company has been shipping the extraordinary for nearly a quarter of a century.

July 18, 2013 // Franchising.com // Denver, CO – For the past 23 years, Craters & Freighters has been helping clients around the globe with their total packaging, crating and shipping solutions. These clients include Fortune 500 high tech and software companies, the world’s top museums and art galleries, and residential consumers.

Craters & Freighters was founded over two decades ago to meet the needs of companies and individuals with heavy, oversized, valuable, awkward and time-sensitive shipments. Requests that other shipping companies refused to handle.

“There isn’t much we haven’t shipped in the last 23 years,” said Diane Gibson, president and founder of Craters & Freighters. “Recently, we’ve ventured into the emerging unmanned systems and robotics industry. It’s a great niche for us because many of the prototypes being shipped need a custom design and engineering packaging solution. We’ll ship just about anything to anywhere. Custom designed and engineered, we have professional packaging engineers on staff to provide unique packaging solutions."

Throughout the years, Craters & Freighters has stayed true to the core principals that have guided its growth. Always looking for that next window of opportunity, the company saw the need to add Hazmat packaging and labeling to their menu of one-stop services.

Some of the more interesting items Craters & Freighters has shipped over the years include flight simulators, server racks, Ming Dynasty pot, Elvis’ guitar, a Maserati concept car, and Vincent Van Gogh paintings.

Looking ahead, the financial outlook for Craters & Freighters is bright. Even amidst a struggling economy, the company has grown an average of 8.25% since 2009. Last year alone, revenues totaled $48,387,088.20 with 66 locations across the nation, including new offices in Pittsburgh, Milwaukee and a future office planned in Birmingham, Al. The company is widening its reach into the international franchise market, and expanding services to include hard cases, robotics, estate sales and government subcontracting.
