Action-Pak’s Core Competence is Packaging & Packing in accordance with DOD Military Standards. Bidding can be confusing when it comes to packing. Doing business with the DOD requires the seller to comply with special packaging requirements. Below is a typical example of what you’ll find when bidding. The government uses Mil- Std- 20173, which is the standard code or format. Our job is deciphering these codes and providing you with a unit price to package each part or product you sell.

If you want to Do-It-Yourself we can provide packaging material kits using a wide variety barrier bags, containers & wooden packaging boxes for use in military applications. Our custom wooden boxes provide full protection to goods during transit, and they keep their contents safe in the face of jostling, corrosion, and adverse environmental factors. We offer wooden military packaging in many different designs and models, and we can also customize our products if one of our stock options does not suit your specific needs.
All of ActionPak’s military packaging is designed to carry heavy loads over long distances. We construct every product with durability in mind, and we ensure that they’re 100% water-tight and termite-free. All our packages are easy to apply in export shipment, and they conform to UN/DOT specifications.
We build boxes and crates using all types of standard wood and plywood. We also build special pallets and reusable containers as needed. In addition to standard wooden packaging, we design boxes in the following styles:
- Trade show boxes
- Foam-lined boxes
- Short-run corrugated boxes
- DIY packing kits
We can incorporate all types of inserts as needed, and we deliver boxes either knocked down or fully assembled. We build each product to follow military specifications as they pertain to:
- Any other containment procedure for a package’s intended contents
In addition, we design pretested HAZMAT containers to package and protect hazardous goods. Any inserts included with your package order come preinstalled or separately for later installation, depending on what’s most convenient for you.
