, : Packaging of apples for export. Rivista di Frutticoltura e di Ortofloricoltura 47(1): 17-18

Packing cases are usually of wood or cardboard. Pack sizes should not be wider than the pallet base and should normally be 50 x 30, 60 x 40 or 40 x 30 cm. Some export markets require special packs e.g. 80 x 120 cm non-returnable packs holding 300 kg of apples on trays; 100 x 120 cm returnable packs in wood or plastic holding 200 kg; 53 x 33 and 50 x 30 telescopic packs holding 20 kg and 18-20 kg, respectively; and 50 x 40 cm wooden cases.
