Today is Veterans Day and we at International Dunnage and Superior Packaging would like to take a moment and honor the military veterans who served in the United States Armed Forces. Veterans Day celebrates all United States, military veterans. The federal holiday coincides with Armistice Day and Remembrance Day which marks the end of World War I. These observances reflect the end of significant hostilities at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 when the Armistice with Germany went into effect.
Initially, the United States observed Armistice Day as well. However, it evolved into the current Veterans Day in 1954. Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day or Armed Forces Day. Memorial Day is set aside for remembering the men and women who died while serving. Additionally, Armed Forces Day recognizes the men and women who are currently serving in the United States military.
Again, Thank You.
Introducing the A Blok! Another new innovative product created for our customers to help protect their cargo and arrive damage free during shipping! A customer and partner needed a solution to reduce and hopefully prevent the damage they were experiencing to their palletized product during transport. Having approached us with this problem, we immediately went to work to create the solution.
Hence the arrival of the A Blok, a custom solution used to fill unique pallet spots and voids in trailers in order to prevent product shifting during transport. Our customer could not be more pleased with the result and is currently enjoying the successes of damage free transport using an economical solution! Not only is the solution affordable, but the savings in damage free product has been substantial.

Did you know we have an auto shipment program? You asked, we listened and delivered.
Over the past few months we have noticed quite an uptick in truck shipments across the country. Because of this change in demand, we adjusted our production accordingly in order to supply our partners with the necessary dunnage bags and void fillers necessary to meet their needs.
The partnership we develop with our customers has also enabled us to create our new auto ship program. This allows our customers to easily manage and ship their products damage free without having to slow down and contact a supplier. The program is easy to manage and our customers love it!
Do you get weekends off work? Lunch breaks? Paid vacation? An eight-hour work day? Social security? If you said “yes” to any of these questions, you can thank the U.S. labor movement for it.
Years of hard-fought battles (and the ensuing legislation they inspired) resulted in many of the most basic benefits we enjoy at our jobs today . On the first Monday in September, we take the day off to celebrate Labor Day and reflect on the American worker’s contributions to our country. For many people Labor Day will be a very important day this year because of the variety of circumstances and changes we have all experienced. Many have had to adjust our work schedules and habits, but we all hope everyone recognizes the importance of Labor Day and takes some time to reflect.
We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday weekend! Safety is a top priority when it come to celebrating with family and friends. From our family to yours - Happy 4th of July!
Safety is also a top priority when shipping precious cargo using our dunnage bags or corrugated dunnage!
