A shipping case goes by many other names, and is also known as a road case, a flight case, or an ATA case. The latter alludes to the fact that such cases were originally designed by airline packaging engineers, named after the specification category, where they were made to withstand a minimum of 100 round-trips. They were first used as shipping containers built for the protection of musical instruments, motion picture equipment, and audio and lighting protection equipment. They are now generally used for any kind of sensitive equipment that needs to be transported between different location, whereby they may be roughly handled by baggage-handling staff.

Highly Durable

The key to these shipping cases is that they are made to be highly durable, so they can withstand the rough handling that can be expected when frequently transported and thrown around by baggage-handling or air cargo staff.
