5 Common OEM Products

39-2445 Custom Antenna Shipping Case

When you work in the logistics industry, you may find yourself faced with unique shipping challenges. No matter what you’re shipping, from canned goods to aircraft parts, your customers expect their shipments to arrive on time and intact. For some goods, this is a challenge, particularly for the various parts and components made by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

The OEM parts that go into cars, electronics, aircraft, and more may be awkwardly shaped and sized, delicate, and heavy. Shipping OEM parts often requires unique shipping solutions. Here are five potentially unwieldy items that Wilson Case transport cases can help you get from A to B:

  1. Antennas
    There are many types of antennas, ranging from simple wire antennas to complex arrays of multiple elements. Some antennas depend on the precise arrangement of their components. Shipping an antenna may require specialized packaging to protect the cargo.
  2. Auto Parts
    Auto parts come in all shapes, sizes, and types. Some parts are delicate while others are more robust. No matter what kind of OEM parts you’re shipping, you need to use the right packaging for the job. OEM product cases must protect electronic parts from dust, moisture, static, and vibration. Many other parts are large, heavy, and difficult to handle, so they may require special handling and packing too.
  3. Scales
    A scale probably isn’t the first thing you think of when someone mentions OEM parts, but they’re built into many devices, such as cash registers, industrial systems, and laboratory equipment. A scale can’t do its job if it isn’t calibrated and handled properly. From the time it leaves the factory to the time it’s installed at its final destination, a scale needs to be protected. Vibration is a scale’s biggest enemy, so shipping cases for scales should use foam to cushion any impacts.
  4. Simulators
    OEM manufacturers supply parts to not only automotive and aeronautic industries but also to the companies that build simulators and other training equipment. Once a simulator is built, it may need to be moved from site to site frequently to train new personnel in different locations. Transporting a large simulator requires special cases built for the job.
  5. Tools
    Manufacturers design OEM tool products to work with specific pieces of equipment. A tool will need to come in and out of its case many times. Some of these tools are sensitive to vibration, temperature, and other hazards. It’s important that cases for tools keep them well protected when not in use, yet easily accessible.

Transporting an OEM object safely, securely, and quickly requires special casing. That’s where we come in.
