A Solution For All Your Packaging Needs


Custom Boxes and Crates

APC Manufactures all types of wooden/steel containers. Depending on the weight and size, our team will develop the best, most cost effective solution for your packaging needs.

100% Compliant Military Packaging

We pack in accordance with "MIL-STD-2073-1E" (or the latest version). The DCMA (Defense Contract Management Agency) works hand in hand with us, visiting APC on a regular basis for inspection and signing off contracts.

Commercial Packaging

We offer packaging of any kind, from Diesel engines to CNC Machines. Advance has the staff, facility, and tools necessary to complete the job at a competitive cost.

Custom Designs/Pallets

Our expertise does not stop at boxes, we also manufacture pallets, skids, dollies, and structures custom to your blue print or our design.

MIL-STD-130 Labels & RFID Labels

MIL-STD-130 Labels are complimentary with all MIL-SPEC packaging. We offer RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) labels at no charge as well. RFID Labels are made mandatory for all Government shipments.

International Compliant (HT STAMP)

All containers being shipped internationally must be compliant with International Standards For Phytosanitary Measures No. 15 (ISPM 15). We stamp your box. It's as easy as that. No delays at customs, and we certify every shipment with a quality certificate.

Logistic Solutions

Logistics can be a costly problem. That's why Advance Packaging offers a fully discounted logistics program. We consider all the major companies (UPS Freight, Reddaway, YRC, Etc… ) and automatically select the most cost effective freight carrier. We do not make a penny off your freight. That's a guarantee!

Foam/ Die Cut Foam

We carry all types of foam in stock incase your part needs extra protection. We offer High density foam, and low density foam as well. The most common foam used is Polyethylene, and Polyurethane. If your part needs a custom foam die cut, we offer that service as well.

Onsite Crating

Have a chandelier or antique at home that needs to be shipped? We offer custom on-site crating for any item anywhere.
