Custom Wooden Shipping Crates

We serve a variety of industries here at Timber Creek. Not only are each industry’s packaging needs different based on the products they manufacture and ship, each company within the industry is unique, as well. That is why we offer custom wooden crates at wholesale prices to meet your product’s shipping and storage requirements.

We can create any style of wooden crate for export or domestic use. We can also build the crate to MIL-SPEC or your specific requirements. Our experienced team of packaging engineers can design and manufacture wooden crates for shipment to anywhere in the world.

Custom Wood Pallets

In addition to crates and other products, we also manufacture pallets. Our Timber Creek pallets are ideal for storage and transport. We specialize in custom wood pallets, softwood pallets, hardwood pallets, mixed hardwood and softwood pallets, heat-treated pallets and even used pallets.

Our pallets can be designed and produced to any specification or desired quantity needed. If you are not sure what you need, just give our packaging design team a call and they can help with recommendations based on your product needs. No pallet design is too simple or complex for our engineers or manufacturing locations.

Wisconsin Hardwood Suppliers

As wholesale hardwood suppliers, we produce over 6 million board feet of hardwood lumber annually. Our hardwood sawmills are green, sustainable examples for the industry. Our state of the art Antigo sawmill produces zero waste. We consume 100% of sawdust byproduct as fuel for heat treating lumber, heating the manufacturing operation, or use in smoke flavoring or animal bedding.

Timber Creek Resource is your one stop shop for custom shipping and storage crates in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and throughout the United States. Give us a call today at 414-466-1645.

Sustainable Wood Packaging

Our Sustainable Mission

Sustainable Wood PackagingTimber Creek Resource believes in building a sustainable future for our country and our children. Our mission is to provide sustainable, cost-effective packaging solutions that protect US manufactured goods shipping around the world.  We try to be an example for our industry, implementing green and sustainable practices from cradle to grave.

We heat treat and certify our lumber and wood packaging to prevent the spread of harmful insects using the measures set forth by the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM 15).  We are audited monthly by a third party to ensure compliance.

USDA Certified BiobasedOur wood pallets are 100% USDA Certified Biobased Products.  This is an exciting new program that we are promoting because it has the potential to make a huge impact with global sustainability trends, not just here in the US. The BioPreferred Program is a USDA-led initiative that aims to facilitate the development and expansion of markets for biobased products. The increased development, purchase, and use of biobased products will reduce our Nation’s reliance on petroleum, and increase the use of renewable agricultural materials.

Timber Creek is expanding our vertical integration efforts to better expose each layer of the supply chain to our sustainable mindset, as detailed below and in the info-graphic to the right.

  • We harvest logs from sustainable, managed forest land.
  • We operate zero-waste hardwood sawmills.
  • In-house packaging engineers design using renewable resources
  • Our manufacturing facilities build “nature’s packaging” and optimize yield to reduce waste.
  • Our own fleet of trucks are loaded to minimize wasted trips.
  • We offer trailer drops in some locations to back-haul scrap pallets for recycling.
  • The scrap pallets and other wood waste that cannot be used are ground into mulch for use in landscaping.
