U-Drop Packing & Shipping was founded in November 1995 to address needs of businesses and consumers for door-to-door specialty freight handling, including crating, shipping, tracking, insuring and delivering shipments too big, fragile, valuable or uniquely-shaped for traditional shippers.

U-Drop builds item-unique crates for each shipment to be transported. Packaging methods include product preparation and protection, custom wood crates, double wall corrugated packaging, palletizing, heat shrink film and vapor barrier, banding and strapping. No job is too big or too small for U-Drop.

We are an independent, locally owned company. U-Drop is a full service logistics provider focused on expert packing, crating and transportation solutions. The company has the unique ability to provide simple solutions to complicated shipping issues -- from insurance and security to product specific packaging and worldwide transportation.

The local oil and gas industry utilizes our professional crating and shipping services which help support their offshore and international needs. U-Drop has successfully protected, packaged, crated and shipped a wide variety of items including oilfield equipment, antique furniture, fine art, computers, motorcycles and hundreds of other items.

IPPC Export Packaging Certification

The most recent impact upon export packaging has been the implementation of IPPC regulations concerning solid wood packaging materials. Many countries now restrict the import of shipping crates constructed using solid wood materials and will only accept those certified as bug free prior to export. U-Drop Packing & Shipping is certified to construct IPPC compliant shipping crates for export. For more information concerning countries with IPPC import restrictions go to
