    Abstract

    This study monitored the shipment of corrugated fiberboard shipping containers in the small parcel shipping environment. Similar boxes were also tested in three different laboratories to determine loss of compression strength in actual shipments, and in simulated tests recommended by the International Safe Transit Association and the American Society for Testing and Materials. Safety factors were developed based on the data collected.
