Viking Packing Specialist is a manufacturer and distributor of ATA Spec. 300 Category I shipping containers, export and domestic wooden crates and all types of hazardous materials packaging. We are registered to the ISO-9000-2015 standard certificate #6002. We make sure to use the best technology and solutions including the best supply chain management system which improves shipping optimization.
Our story began in 1979 when Viking started as a crating company. We served local manufacturers, primarily those in the oil industry. Soon after, we branched into the aviation market by producing ATA plastic containers. At the request of our aviation customers, we became experts in U.S. DOT Hazmat packaging. As part of this, we began manufacturing and testing packaging materials such as shipping boxes and corrugated boxes to ensure the legal shipment of dangerous goods, both domestically and internationally. With our expertise in hazmat regulations, we decided to further increase our services by performing the required training and consultation for individuals and companies who need help ensuring compliance with federal regulation.
In 2005, David Weilert, through Weilert Enterprises, Inc., purchased Viking Packing Specialist. Since that time, we have worked to maintain Viking’s wonderful reputation, while adding new capabilities, products and equipment. In 2016, Viking Packing Specialist purchased GSI Logistics, Inc. in Dallas, which allowed us to expand the Viking brand to a new region.
After 39 years and more than $20 million in annual sales, we’ve built a reputation of getting the job done quickly and efficiently. As we continue to expand, our goal will always be to ensure our customers’ satisfaction.
