Birmingham — Made To Measure Timber Shipping Crates & Wooden Cases

Birmingham businesses or individuals requiring made to measure wooden shipping crates & cases can now benefit from a seriously fast turnaround thanks to increased production & reduced lead times at DEFENDA TRANSPORT & LOGISTICS.


Automotive component manufacturers are often under enormous pressure to reduce lead times whilst still ensuring no interruptions to their clients’ production runs — so it is incredibly important that access to standard or custom made crates & cases allows timely dispatch of orders. Our short lead times should allow those under pressure to satisfy the demands of the JIT supply chain.


DEFENDA Transport specialise in a range of standard & custom made packaging solutions for a wide range of industry sectors distributing goods around the U.K., into Europe or to other destinations around the world. Our wooden packing cases and protective timber crates are the perfect way to protect valuable & fragile goods in transit and can now be produced with incredibly short lead times.


Bespoke or custom made wooden shipping crates at short notice for Birmingham clients

Thanks to our investment in additional production capacity, we can produce custom crates to suit almost any deadline our customers are working to. Sometimes clients have been keen to test us to the absolute maximum — requiring a bespoke crate or case within just hours of contacting us. So far we have been able to oblige them. However we would advise giving a little more notice whenever possible.


Custom Made & Standard DEFENDA CRATES


One way wooden crates & cases for freight to U.K. & international destinations can be custom made quickly or standard stocked sizes can be supplied upon demand. Reusable collapsable crates & containers for return and re–use can require slightly longer lead times.

Whether you need shipping cases, crates or containers for your business or you’re moving to a new home overseas and need them for exporting your personal possessions call us for help.

We regularly produce wooden TV crates & cases for valuable televisions that need a high degree of protection during transit. We have also provided very competitive shipping prices for shipping Televisions in our cases to countries including: the USA, Canada, Australia, Dubai, Qatar and most European destinations.

Birmingham Pallet Distribution Company Expands Fleet

….For increased Pallet Distribution & Oversized Parcel Deliveries in Birmingham


Our Birmingham Couriers business, which as well as small packages: specialises in the distribution of large parcels, palletised and non-palletised goods around the UK, has been forced to take on an additional five vehicles to cope with an increasing number of clients in Birmingham.

Adding the five large ‘Movano Low-Loaders’ gives us much needed extra capacity for pallets whether they are destined for an urgent same day delivery in a dedicated vehicle or to be collected from a Birmingham client and inserted into our ‘Pallet Network’ for next day or economy delivery.


Whilst our pallet delivery business has shown extremely healthy growth over a number of years, the increased reluctance of traditional parcel carriers to handle bulky consignments and the failure of ‘City Link’, an ‘ugly freight’ specialist over a year ago, means more and more customers are looking to us in an effort to find an economical method of getting larger products to their clients. Our wide range of delivery options mean we can usually help them achieve this within the budget they have available.


We can provide our clients with fast pallet deliveries on a same-day dedicated vehicle basis or often as groupage in one of our vans. For less urgent deliveries, insertion into our pallet network on a next day or 2/3 day service is an economical method of delivering your items. Whilst goods not on a pallet can’t be shipped through a pallet network they can still benefit from our oversized parcel service which can be used for large items up to 2.5 metres long. Packages over this length would need to be sent on one of our vehicles as a dedicated vehicle delivery or on an economical Groupage Rate.


For advice on the delivery of your items call us on 0121 2704938
