Packaging Academy: Protection, Innovation,and Special Features

Protective Covers

By Matt Peat

At Transhield, we’re passionate about protection. Some might say we’re obsessed. But you need assurances that your equipment arrives at its destination in the same condition as when it left your floor. In our new educational series on shipping, we’ll discuss the issues at the heart of shipping protection — from boats and modular homes to planes and heavy machinery.


No doubt, you’re familiar with what it takes to prepare your units for flatbed transportation. You’ve probably been fighting the challenges for years. The right fabrics, covers, and shipping process can be a game-changer. Learn how to make shipping day run like clockwork.


What does your current packaging say about your product? On the flatbed and at your customer’s door, your packaging should let them know you care every step of the way. There are many ways to make sure your packaging has as much impact as what’s under the cover.


The inevitable question is “Yeah, but what will it cost me?” And we get it. So, we’ll discuss how our advanced fabric protective covers reduce installation time and save money on shipping day — with no sacrifice to quality. In fact, we’ll let you know how we help customers save money by using our patented designs and installation.
