What is “Specialty Freight Handling?”

Craters & Freighters Franchise
In 1990, Craters & Freighters created an industry by offering custom crating and shipping solutions for businesses and consumers with shipments too big, fragile, valuable or uniquely-shaped for traditional shippers. Now, with the only national network of “Specialty Freight Handlers,” Craters & Freighters dominates the industry.


Target Markets

The Craters & Freighters marketing plan targets the art and antique industries and retail packaging and shipping stores initially, along with commercial applications such as manufacturers, medical equipment and instrumentation, high tech equipment, defense contracts and asset relocations. Our crate engineering capabilities give us the unique ability to provide product-specific packing solutions not readily available to many shippers.


Competitive Advantage

  • Our loyalty to individual freight carriers enables us to negotiate substantial discounts.
  • Our ability to engineer packaging solutions for nearly any product gives us access to business sectors others can’t approach.
  • Our cargo insurance policy allows you to offer coverage on even the most valuable freight.
  • We created e-Quote, a real-time, on-line quoting engine in response to the specific needs of the e-commerce and auction communities. is the only site that allows users to get immediate, full service shipping estimates for one item or many at any time.

Training and Ongoing Support

Your franchise fee includes training, opening and ongoing assistance, and enrollment in our carrier discount and cargo insurance programs. Royalties are 5% of gross revenues and a National Ad Fund contribution of 1%.
