Machines and Accessories No. 06-04
Date: November 3, 2006
Subject: CBM packaging material
This is a reminder to the network of cooperating libraries to use the machine
packaging material only for its intended purpose of shipping and storing machines.
When shipping machines to the disposal contractor, use the nonstandard machine
shipping cartons with no inside packaging material (styrofoam, newspaper, bubble
wrap, etc.). This method of shipping will allow you to ship more machines, and will
help NLS conserve its standard CBM carton and styrofoam stock.
Also, please refrain from placing several labels on the outside surface of the shipping
carton. Too many of labels degrade carton appearance and obscure the last shipping
library, repair shop, or intended destination. If you think the carton looks battered,
change it before shipping it.
