Shipping Racks Designed to Safely Ship Vehicle Parts without Loss or Damage


Steel King Industries, Inc., a 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.

Steel King offers in-house engineering, design, prototyping, laser/plasma cutting, CNC machining, welding, powder coating and assembling, Starting with the part or prototype, design experts use a unique process to develop a completely customized application-specific solution to ensure products are handled delicately and not scratched, dented, or broken.
