Shipping Containers

Everything you need to know about shipping containers!

Shipping containers ship things, there is no mystery in that. When a shipping container is loaded with cargo it is placed on a ship and that ship takes them around the world to make sure the goods get to where they need to be. Recently though the cut-and-dry uses for shipping containers are changing and they have been used for a lot of different things that don’t involve shipping goods. Today we will be exploring the weird trends that have come up in the past couple years.

Incorporating TSA-Approved Locks in Your Case

Monday, January 18th, 2016
TSA-Approved Locks Airplane

Any cases you may have that incorporate locks need to be approved by the TSA in order to be checked into an airline. Learn here how to incorporate these locks.

Regardless of what you are transporting or shipping in your custom cases, you should make sure that the locks are TSA-approved. Almost 2/3 of people drop off baggage and cases before boarding their flights, and depending on the size of the cases you bring to trade shows, you might be one of them. If you don’t incorporate TSA-approved locks into your case design, they will find a way in, even if it means cutting off the lock or irreparably damaging your custom case. (more…)

Veterans Day and Packaging Strategies Inc.: Honoring our Nation’s Veterans

Friday, November 9th, 2012

This Veterans Day, we at Packaging Strategies Inc. would like to thank all past and present service men and women for their dedicated service. Thank You! The History of Veterans Day On November 11, 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, ceased fighting furing World War I, known at the time as “The Great War.” The next year, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day. “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”

Then, in 1938, an Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U. S. Code, Sec. 87a) officially made November 11th a legal holiday, a day dedicated to honor veterans of World War I. But following World War II and the Korean War, the 83rd Congress amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and instead inserting the word “Veterans.” And on June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor ALL American veterans. Happy Veterans Day from all of us here at Packaging Strategies Incorporated!

The History of Flag Day :: Government Cases and Shipping Containers

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

We have national holidays to honor our military, former presidents, and even Christopher Columbus. But what about our flag? What about Old Glory? When do we honor the Stars and the Stripes? Well, today! June 14th is also known as Flag Day.

A Timeline of the History of Flag Day

  • Believed to have originated in 1885, Flag Day was the invention of a schoolteacher name BJ Cigrand. He arranged for his students to observe June 14th as “Flag Birthday” or Flag Day.
  • In 1889, George Balch, also a teacher, planned ceremonies for his students to observe Flag Day, an idea later adopted by the State Board of Education of New York.
  • In 1891, the Betsy Ross House in Philadelphia held a Flag Day celebration on June 14th.
  • In 1892, the New York Society of the Sons of the Revolution celebrated Flag Day on June 14th, as well.
  • On April 25, 1893, the Pennsylvania Society of Colonial Dames of America adopted a resolution requesting the mayor of Philadelphia and all others in authority and all private citizens to display the Flag on June 14th. Two weeks later on May 8th, the Board of Managers of the Pennsylvania Society of Sons of the Revolution unanimously endorsed the action of the Pennsylvania Society of Colonial Dames. As a result of the resolution, Dr. Edward Brooks, then Superintendent of Public Schools of Philadelphia, directed that Flag Day exercises be held on June 14, 1893 in Independence Square.
  • In 1894, then governor of New York directed that the Flag be displayed on all public buildings on June 14th.
  • In 1894 the first general public school children’s celebration of Flag Day in Chicago was held in Douglas, Garfield, Humboldt, Lincoln, and Washington Parks.
  • The Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916 officially established Flag Day.
  • On August 3rd, 1949, President Harry S. Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.
