Deciphering our part numbers
You don’t need to be a superhero or own a decoder ring to figure out our used box part numbers because we made them easy to decipher. While they might look like random letters and numbers, our part numbers actually describe the box. Here’s how we break it down:
Size + Type + Feature + Walls = Part number
- ONE number = box height. The other dimensions are a standard pallet size: 48” x 40”.
- MULTIPLE numbers = the Length, then the Width, then the Height.
- Type: We’ve got three…
- REC = Rectangle
- OCT = Octagon
- HPT = High-performance tote (heavy-duty rectangle)
- Feature: A distinguishing box feature. Not all part numbers include one.
- HSC (Half-Slotted Container) = full flaps on the bottom only
- RSC (Regular-Slotted Container) = full flaps on the top and bottom
- DI (Drop-In)
- COR (Corner)
- V (Vented)
- Walls: Easy peezy! This is the number of walls the box has…2W, 3W, 4W, etc.
Here are some EXAMPLES to help you out:
Boxes that are a standard pallet size (48” x 40”):
- 34”(H) + HPT + 4 Walls = 34HPT4W
- 35”(H) + Octagon + Drop-In + 4 Walls = 35OCTDI4W
- 34”(H) + Rectangle + Flaps on bottom + 5 Walls = 34RECHSC5W
A box that isn’t a standard pallet size:
- 35”(L) x 40”(W) x 37”(H) + Octagon + 4 Walls = 354037OCT4W
See, that wasn’t hard at all. Now you try it. Go to our Box page and see if can figure it out. I know you can.
