Automotive engines and “Drive Trains” have traditionally been shipped around the world using steel, timber and plastic packaging constructions.
Through an ingenious use of Heavy Duty corrugated cardboard, DS Smith Packaging Division Engineers can now construct bespoke shapes and structures to support most types of automotive engines and gearboxes, suitable for worldwide distribution and long term storage. Tooling costs are often a fraction of plastic alternatives and the time between conception and delivery is usually measured in weeks, not months!
Vehicle Drive Train
- To maximise the shipping container the product needed to be stacked 3 high in transit.
- To achieve 3 high in transit the engine needed to occupy the pallet space yet still allowing for mechanical handling
- The engine cradles are positioned between the main fork truck access points thus lowering the overall pack height
- Individual triple wall sleeves allow easy loading and unloading of the engine.
