Abstract:

An assessment of available data and information describing the common carrier shipping environment was conducted. The assessment included the major shipping hazards of shock, vibration, impact, temperature, and humidity associated with the handling, transportation, and warehousing operations of typical distribution cycles. Previous environmental studies and current data are reviewed and assessed for applicability to general type cargo design andor evaluation. The data for each hazard are summarized in a format considered most useful to packaging engineers when such data are available. Hazards requiring further information and description are identified and discussed. Author
