Kitting, Packaging and Labeling

Whole Order Delivery

Wesco’s whole order delivery service prepares a dedicated shipment for each phase of installation. Color-coded shrink wrap, labels and pallet packing lists make your products easy to identify.

Workstation Kit

Kits reduce the number of shipments you receive, unpack and transport. Kits also help to reduce unproductive labor by eliminating time spent searching for and collecting materials.

Jack Pack

Wesco’s Jack Pack solution removes OEM packaging from individual modular jacks and repacks them into bags or boxes in quantities of 25, 50 or 100. Jack packs save time, reduce unproductive labor and minimize waste packaging from the job site.

Jack Bucket

Wesco's Jack Bucket solution removes OEM packaging from individual modular jacks along with any sub-components packaged with jacks (e.g. icons, stuffer caps), and repacks them into 5-gallon buckets with lids. Jack buckets hold a minimum of 200 pieces.

Cord Bundling

Wesco’s cord bundling solutions include copper or patch cord bundling with or without the labeling of the patch cords. Having pre-bundled cords delivered to the job site provides for a more efficient install as the cords can be plugged in within minutes. 

Labeling Solutions

Wesco’s labeling solutions help you to focus on network set up with custom labeling for copper patch cords, fiber jumpers and fiber trunks, as well as fiber trunk box reel and flange labeling.


Carts and Baskets

Job Cart

Wesco’s job carts are custom tailored to efficiently store products during the rough-in stages of electrical construction.

Cable Tray Carts

Wesco’s cable tray carts reduce the labor and installation time to install cable tray in large installations.

Deployment Baskets

Wesco’s deployment baskets make the shipping and storing of consumables and reels of cable at the job site fast and easy. 



Cable Pulling Solutions

Low-Voltage Cable Cart

Wesco’s low voltage cable cart is ideal for installing cables such as Category 5 and 6, security cables, door lock cables and other low voltage communications cables.


INSTA-REEL consists of a standard wooden reel that has oversized flanges attached to both sides and becomes a payout stand when chocked in place.


Device Pre-Configuration

Camera dead-on-arrival (DOA), update firmware and configure IP addresses

Wesco can check cameras for dead-on-arrival (DOA), update firmware and configure IP addresses prior to shipping; reducing non-productive labor and speeding installation at the job site.


IP addressing of UPS device

Wesco’s IP addressing of UPS devices is basic IP addressing of an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) with or without integrated SNMP card, in the 1-6kVA size range for swifter installation.
