Air Transport Association Approved Cases (ATA Cases) & Shipping Containers

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

New developments in communication technology have allowed companies all across the globe to more easily connect and do business. Because of this, travel is inevitable in almost any job. At times, however, this can be rather stressful, especially if you are required to travel with or ship sensitive / delicate instruments, goods, and equipment.

Let’s be honest; airline baggage handlers are not exactly known for their delicate touch.

The Solution: Air Transport Association approved cases, better known as ATA cases.

ATA cases come in a wide range of different sizes and weights. And if there isn’t a stock case available to fit your needs, custom cases can be designed for specific items and then created within the ATA terms.

ATA Specifications

  1. ATA cases must be made from plastic laminate, fiberglass or aluminum.
  2. The inner walls and partitions must have multi-layer wood lining.
  3. Steel rivets.
  4. Foam interior.

The History of Memorial Day :: Government & Military Cases :: Weapons Cases

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Originally called Decoration Day, Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have bravely given their lives in our nation’s service. While the origin of this federal holiday is up for debate, with several conflicting histories, Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on May 5, 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on May 30, 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery.

By 1890, Memorial Day was recognized by all of the northern states. Still, the South refused to acknowledge the holiday. That was until after World War I, when the holiday changed from honoring just those who died fighting in the Civil War to honoring Americans who died fighting in any war.

Passed by Congress with the National Holiday Act of 1971, Memorial Day is no celebrated on the last Monday in May.

We at Packaging Strategies Inc. would like to thank all of our service men and women for their dedicated service. Thank You!
