aluminum shipping caseLet’s not mince words: Mining can be an extremely hazardous occupation. Working deep inside the earth extracting valuable resources with advanced, and powerful machinery is simply an inherently dangerous task. Staying competitive in the mining business means being able to quickly and safely transport mining equipment across large distances. Whether you’re above ground or below, being able to depend on your mining equipment is vital. Advanced Packaging is here to talk about the advantages of using custom aluminum shipping cases to transport sensitive mining equipment.

Wear and Tear

The beating a shipping case undergoes could often be comparable to the force routinely doled out by an industrial grade mining drill. Between slips in handling, sliding around an unsecured truck or aircraft, and exposure to the sun, rain, wind, and snow while it waits on a tarmac, your average shipping case undergoes a lot on its way to your destination. And that’s just the journey there, once your equipment arrives on site it has to contend with coal dust, powdered minerals, and bombardment from chunks of sediment routinely dislodged during blasting.


An aluminum shipping case not only protects against the raw force of sheer explosives, but is corrosion resistant, virtually immune to weather degradation, solar-radiation proof, and mitigates the effects of sudden temperature changes. A fully welded aluminum shipping case offers an impermeable barrier against water, airborne particles, dangerous chemicals, and almost all physical harm. The same can’t be said for wooden or low-grade plastic cases, which can easily chip, splinter, warp, dissolve, or be otherwise compromised by the extreme conditions faced on a daily basis in mining.
