What is the definition of mechanically handled bulk loads?
We are shipping out approximately 40 palletized crates in a 40' high cube container and were wondering if we should test per ISTA 3B as we currently do, or if we should perform the ISTA 3H test for mechanically handled bulk loads. We can not find a definition of "bulk loads" anywhere and I think that our single products do not constitute this requisite, but I want to be sure, since we are sending about 40 of the large single products in a container.
Mechanically handled bulk loads are one transport container or system consisting of the same product that because of their size and/or weight must be handled by mechanical means, for example, automotive parts in reusable racks.
