An Approach “Not Easily Replicated by Competitors”
Transit packaging, those pallets, crates, and boxes that carry products from factory to market, comes with some engineering challenges that are familiar to most of us.

PTC partner, Concurrent Engineering, recently gave us an inside look into the industry in a profile video of its customer Nicklin Transit Packaging. While most companies in the transit packaging sector remain low tech, Nicklin’s team has gone all in with 3D CAD, including parametric and direct modeling, simulation tools, and calculation software.
