Each year in the United States, Americans observe the Federal holiday, Memorial Day, the last Monday in May. It honors and remembers all men and women who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Memorial Day is also a day to remember all loved ones who have passed away.
Traditionally on Memorial Day, the flag of the United States of America is raised briskly to the top of the staff then solemnly lowered to the half-staff position where it remains until noon. At noon, it is then raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day.
When the flag is at half-staff, the position is in remembrance of the more than one million men and women who gave their lives for their country. Raising the flag at noon signifies the nation lives, that the country is resolved not to let their sacrifice be in vain but to rise up in their honor and continue to fight for liberty and justice for all.
If you are looking for ideas on how to observe Memorial Day consider attending a Memorial Day service in your community. Pay tribute in your own way in remembrance of service members who have died while serving. Or, visit a veterans’ cemetery to honor those who’ve impacted your life.
From all of us at International Dunnage and Superior Packaging, we remember and honor our veterans and loved ones who have passed away.
Anti-slip mats are an important and reliable component for your professional load securing system. If you’re looking for a product that will secure and control movement of your shipments by railroad, over-the-road truck or container, we've got you covered! Non-slip rubber friction mats have become standard equipment in the professional transportation field and for good reason. When using non-slip mats, the friction force of the goods is in direct contact with the rubber mat. This significantly increases the coefficient of friction, ultimately preventing the load from slipping.
APPLICATIONS/MARKETS FOR ANTI-SLIP RUBBER MATS
Most common applications and uses for Anti-slip Rubber Mats include, but not limited to:
FEATURES AND BENEFITS FOR ANTI-SLIP RUBBER MATS:
Cost Effective: A more efficient and less expensive option to wood blocking and bracing, eliminates nail holes in trailer floors and product damage in turn reducing claim costs.
Environmentally Friendly: Recycled and recyclable-made from granulated rubber and Green Circle Certified.
Easy Installation: Easily rolled out and cut to size, no adhesive or nails needed.
Safe Handling: Increased safety for employees - no risk of injury from nailing or extracting wood blocking and bracing.
Reusable: Mats have a long service life and can be used over and over.
AAR Approved: Approved by the Association of American Railroads.
Internationally Approved Load Securement Device: Meets the "North American Cargo Securement Standard" of FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration), CMTA (Canadian Council of Motor Transportation Administrators), CVSA (Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance), and DOT (Department of Transportation) regulations.
At International Dunnage U.S. and Superior Packaging, we are consistently looking to develop easy to use and affordable solutions to improve safety and efficiency for our customers' warehouses, loading docks, and trucks. Pictured below is our latest set of new tools designed to save you money, protect your cargo and improve overall efficiency whether loading a truck, railcar, or sea container.
Featured new tools include: Dunnage Bag Hanger and Hanger Tool, Corrugated Void Filler Hanger Tool and Void Filler, and our Essential Dunnage Bag Inflator Kit - Warehouse/Dock V2. All developed with you, our partners and customers, in mind. The Dunnage Bag Hanger is a custom cut cardboard application that slips onto the flap or your dunnage bag and is ideal for double stacked loads. When used in combination with the dunnage bag hanger tool, it allows an employee or driver to easily place a dunnage bag without putting the employee at risk while attempting to stabilize cargo. Once the bag is placed, an employee or driver can reach into the essential dunnage bag inflator kit and use their portable air tool and easily inflate the dunnage bag. When filled to the proper PSI, air tool and chuck are placed back in the bag. Simple, safe, cost effective, and efficient.
The corrugated void filler tool works very similarly. In this example, the void filler is used to stabilize the bottom cargo load. For instances where a corrugated void filler is used in a stacked load, the corrugated hanger tool can be used to safely and easily place the void filler without risk to the employee or driver. Another cost effective and efficient tool used to improve transport of your cargo.
We value the relationships we have created with all of our customers and partners. When we identify an opportunity to improve the application and use of our void fillers and dunnage bags, we jump on it and work to design the best solution. If you encounter a situation where your cargo is not properly secured by your current provider, please contact us and request a quote. We welcome all opportunities to ensure cargo is safely transported throughout the world.
How many times have you heard, 'We have fantastic customer service. Work with us and you'll get that extra personal touch and receive a high level of communication, support, and service.' At Superior Packaging and International Dunnage U.S. we mean it! We don't just provide lip service, which is defined as an avowal of advocacy, adherence, or allegiance expressed in words but not backed by deeds. We absolutely deliver on customer service. We do what we say and say what we do. We truly value the relationship and build trust with all our customers and partners. When we say we can find the solution to protect any cargo load situation, we mean it and stand behind our word.
Case in point, we received a call from a potential customer who was panicked and in desperate need of dunnage bags. For many of our customers and partners, we know and understand that if they are unable to transport their products securely without shifting during transport, the cargo doesn't ship. And that means potential loss of revenue, their own customers become angry, potential delays in payments, and the negative domino effect continues.
So standing behind our word, we personally delivered a shipment of dunnage bags using a personal vehicle on top of that. This is just one example out of many of the type and quality of customer service we provide to all current and potential customers and partners. If you are not receiving this type of support and service from your current dunnage bag supplier, corrugated dunnage supplier, or load securement provider, please reach out to us. You will definitely see an immediate difference and it will be the best decision you could make to ensure your cargo reaches its destination on time and damage free. You will not be disappointed. In fact, you will be pleasantly surprised!

And he can't wait to get the new inflator tool kit - a valuable resource he can give to all the elves that work on the dock loading the gifts.
We hope all of our customers and partners have a safe and memorable holiday season this year! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from International Dunnage and Superior Packaging Company.
Often times we receive calls from potential customers that are experiencing damage to their products during transport. When a new customer like this reaches out to us, we get right to work and begin developing a custom solution specific to their needs and a solution that is cost effective.
This particular customer, and now partner, was experiencing pallet shifting during shipping and significant damage to their product was a direct result. This is how our A Blok originated - a great solution for incomplete pallets in a truck. Since implementation, this client has seen significant reduction in product damage and experienced an immediate cost savings. Our partner could not be happier. This is what we will achieve! Call us today and partner with us!
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.

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.

No challenge is too big or too small. Working (or we prefer partnering) with us includes several resources and innovative solutions, not just a purchase order. Experience a true partnership!
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.
