MIL-STD-2073 Military Packaging
This details military packaging requirements as they differ from standard commercial packaging methods. These requirements cover actual shipping containers and boxes as well as preservation materials to ensure your product is not damaged by environmental factors or significant jostling during shipment or degradation during extended storage. MAC Packaging has perfected MIL-STD-2073 requirements over the past 40 years and can help you with any questions or packaging needs associated with your government contract.

STANDARD COMMERCIAL PACKAGING
MILITARY EQUIPMENT IS SPLIT INTO TWO DISTINCT PACKAGING CATEGORIES
The first is those items not entering the military distribution system, such as items for immediate use or that are not mission capable. For these items you do not need to worry about MIL-STD and can use standard, commercial packaging options.
The second are those items that will enter the military distribution system and will be subjected to extended storage periods, have reusable components, or delivered during wartime, possibly through battlefield conditions.
