Dunnage Engineering designs and manufactures returnable, reusable trays for the shipping, handling, and/or processing of parts or products for a variety of applications. These trays are specially engineered to protect the parts during shipment and can also be utilized during the manufacturing process.


  • We can design trays from part CAD data or actual parts
  • We prototype trays using 3D printing or machined model board
  • In house large size tray injection molding capacity
  • We can mold in steel pins or plates for special applications
  • We can include abrasion resistant nests, lids or other components
  • We can provide complete unit loads including plastic pallet and lid

Material Selection

Most trays are polypropylene co-polymer because it offers good durability at an economical price. Some applications require more specially engineered plastic resins. For instance, trays utilized in robotic handling applications or wash cycles may require reinforced materials or thermoplastic alloys. Trays which hold electrical components might require a material with ESD (electrostatic discharge) properties. Also, parts with sharp areas may require a more cut resistant material in order to eliminate plastic shaving contamination. We have an outstanding knowledge of thermoplastic materials and many times will bring in material suppliers for their input on new applications. We always welcome the opportunity to explore something new.
