Active Standard: D4169 - 09
Section 11.4 of the Schedule B and Schedule C portion of D4169-09 indicates that LTL and small parcel delivery have the same average shipping density factor. However, ASTM D7386 and other industry specifications used for simulating the small parcel environment reference different average shipping density factors. Since DC 13 encourages using ASTM D7386, consider removing reference to small package delivery in Section 11.4.
