A wooden crate is a box which protects the product during transport. There is usually a spacing between the boards which makes this solution less costly compared to the solid box. Crates are often used for the aero and other similar sectors due to their lower weight.
In spite of its lighter construction, the wooden crate is as strong and reliable as any other packaging unit. Since it does not get built up with the classic solid wooden walls, but with boards instead, it is ideal for the storage of items with large volume and lighter weight. The see-through structure can be an advantage as well, if the crate happens to be used as a display item.
