Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) January 03, 2012
Craters & Freighters, the national leader in specialty freight solutions, announced today the opening of a new franchise location in Indianapolis as a result of the area’s high demand for specialty freight handling services.
“We receive frequent calls from customers interested in specialty freight solutions either to or from Indianapolis,” said Diane Gibson, Craters & Freighters founder and president. Because of Indiana's great Central, Mid-western location and their exciting tourism trade relating to the racing industry and professional sports teams, we saw the need to provide this important market with our unique services.
Craters & Freighters provides expert packaging, crating and shipping services from locations nationwide. Unique to the transportation industry, the company engineers and builds customized shipping containers and wood crates to ensure all shipments arrive safe, damage-free and on-time. Some of the most unique, valuable and challenging shipments the company has handled include:
- $13 million worth of paintings by masters including Van Gogh and Rembrandt, which were shipped from a locked vault in Florida to a locked vault in Switzerland
- A complete F-15 flight simulator, which was shipped from an Air Force base in Florida to one in Texas in 32 crates ranging in size from 20’ x 12’ to 3’ x 3’
- $195,000 full-size, wooden carved Ferrari for a luxury hotel in Las Vegas
Craters & Freighters was founded in June 1990 to meet the needs of businesses and consumers for specialty freight handling, including pick-up, crating, shipping, tracking, insuring and delivery of shipments that are too heavy, oversized, valuable, awkward, and time-sensitive for other shipping agencies. The company serves consumers and businesses in all sectors including telecommunications, electronics, medical equipment, aerospace, biotechnology, heavy machinery, fine art, and antiques.
