The Fourth of July holiday is almost here. With that in mind, it’s important to think about how our country came to be. It was forged out of the military’s tenacity, versatility, and durability. Durability is one of the most important qualities any custom case can have, so if you’re building aluminum cases for the military this year, then follow this advice.
What Do They Need to Transport?
Every branch of the military needs to move different supplies. Once you have been contracted to produce aluminum cases for the armed forces, you will need to bear in mind the materials and equipment they depend on in the field. Gear such as boots, helmets, and flak jackets must fit into one particular type of aluminum case, and then let’s say that the next week you will need to ship rifles, ammunition, and hand grenades.
Depending on the size of the contents, you may need to produce crates as well. To prevent any unfortunate incidents that could harm the troops, support staff, and civilians, you need to make sure that the aluminum cases and crates you create are the toughest and most durable ones that you can. They may need more than just the standard TSA lock – but maybe a key code built into the side of the lid could work instead.
Which Branch Is It?
Beyond the pressing question what cargo you must account for, you also need to consider the specific branch of the military you are working for; while the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines may all need similar supplies, they will have different specifications for their equipment. You’ll also have to think about what materials service members will need if they belong to the National Guard or the Coast Guard.
You can never predict the terrain and climate of the next mission, so you need to prepare for all of them. While current areas of operation may be in the desert or somewhere else that intensely hot, that could always change. For instance, redeployment to another hostile environment where it is bitterly cold calls for a different set of demands on the aluminum cases that you design.
