Packaging Changes

Item 275, Definition of or Specifications for Tubes, is amended as follows: ITEM 275

DEFINITION OF OR SPECIFICATIONS FOR TUBES
Tubes are containers that may be cylindrical, squared or triangular and may be made of fiberboard, paperboard or plastic. Tubes must be of construction and size that protects the contents and prevents movement of the contents that could cause damage from the normal rigors of the less-than-truckload environment. Ends of tubes may be removable or nonremovable and may be made of same or other materials. Removable ends must be securely held in place to protect and prevent loss of contents during transport.

 

Item 245, Definition of or Specifications for Crates, is amended as follows: ITEM 245


DEFINITION OF OR SPECIFICATIONS FOR CRATES
Crates are containers constructed of wood or metal slats or structural members with
apertures between, securely nailed, bolted, screwed, riveted, welded, glued, dovetailed, or wired and stapled together, having sufficient strength to hold contents so as to withstand the normal rigors of the less-than-truckload environment. Crates must be constructed with slats or members sufficiently close to one another to adequately protect contents on the sides, ends, tops and bottoms, and in such manner that the crate containing its contents may be taken into or out of the vehicle. Contents must be securely held within crates and no part shall protrude, unless otherwise provided in individual items. Surfaces liable to be damaged must be fully covered and protected. All moveable contents within the crate must be blocked and/or braced to prevent any shifting during transportation. Commodities with legs must be suspended away from all edges of the crate by at least one inch. If the weight of the commodity exceeds 500 pounds, a standard crate must be used instead of a wirebound crate

Wooden crates, other than wirebound crates, must be constructed as follows:
(1) No Change.
(2) No Change.
(3) Crates must be constructed with three-way locking corners, where members will be
joined with nails or other fasteners driven into side grain of joining members. Examples are shown
