One-Way Systems

In many cases, a reusable crate is not needed or return cycling is not feasible.  For those customers we have developed our “one-way” Quick-Crates as a cost effective alternative to the returnable system.  They are constructed with the same clip-style system and offer custom sizing, like reusable Quick-Crates.


Just as the reusable system is designed around durability, the one-way system is designed for economy.  The one-way crates feature ¾” OSB (oriented strand board) material for the sides, ends and tops in lieu of plywood and the pallet blocks and stringers are nailed rather than bolted.  The one-way crate still has amazing strength, is fully collapsible and is ISPM-15 export compliant but it won’t make 50 return cycles.  The big advantage is cost.  In most cases, the one-way crates cost about 30% less than the reusable crates. 


Quick-Crate One-Way shipping crates advantages include:

  • Collapsible - require a fraction of warehouse space compared to set-up crates
  • ISPM-15 import/export compliant
  • Strength characteristics similar to Quick-Crate's heavy duty reusable systems
  • Cost 20 - 40 percent less than returnable crates
  • 3/4" material offers maximum protection

The Quick-Crate® One-Way system is designed to improve your bottom line while ensuring products arrive safely. The convenient One-Way Shipping Crates can be set up or knocked down by one person in 2 to 3 minutes without screws, nails, steel banding, or other special tools.
