R&R Express arranges the transportation and ships over 200 different shipments per week for various repeat clients.
We were involved in a Packing/Crating and Transporting artifacts of various types which are housed at Redstone Arsenal, AL. These artifacts were located on floors, shelves, enclosed cabinets.
These artifacts were in various shapes and sizes. We wrapped small items in tissue and placed one each into acid free cardboard trays to be placed into acid free FRC boxes. Munitions with fins fitted into ethafoam to prevent damage to fins. Acid free cardboard tubes or long specialized crates/housings needed to be constructed for the packing of larger munitions and special implements, such as, ramrods, staves, worms, sponge, and pikes.
Very important aspect of this move was to PACK/ CRATE and TRANSPORT Fragile items, models, and instruments. We have to make custom fitted boxes with ethafoam cushioning on all sides and ethafoam blocks or extruded ethafoam tube to provide blocking/stabilization.
After carefully packing and Crating we made arrangements for Crane / boom truck and lift truck to load it on our trucks to transport at destination. While it is on the way to destination, we had one of our Supervisors to make arrangement to unload and store in shippers warehouse.
Most satisfying part of this move was Artifacts that we moved is a part of History at display in White Sands Museum in NM
