Description:

The battery is placed within a frame which has been exactly sized to fit and is nailed to the deck of the pallet. The frame consists of two 2″ x 4″ x 48″ lower and two 2″ x 2″ x 31″ upper wooden cleats. All contacts must be capped. A honeycomb style corrugated filler is placed on top of the battery to provide further protection to the contacts. Stretch wrap secures the package.

They must be firmly secured to pallets capable of withstanding the shocks imposed on them by transport. See DOT Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR) for further clarification.
