Crating & Skidding

Crating is a fundamental element in the transporting of cargo. It is essential to protect the cargo from damage and/or contamination. The correct design and highest quality of materials need to be used to ensure it can withstand the process of transporting. Lawson builds crates for each specific machine along with barrier bags to eliminate moisture from damaging machines in the transportation process.

We employ air-ride tractors and trailers to protect your valuable equipment during a single machine move or entire plant relocation.
