If this your first awarded Government contract with military packaging, here's what we strongly recommend you do:

We highly recommend you establish a packaging program at your facility. The first step to establishing a packaging program is to train your staff on military packaging. For extensive training or available correspondence courses, contact the School of Military Packaging Technology. Check out our training web page for their contact information. During this time of acquiring training and establishing a good quality packaging program, we recommend your company utilize a Military Packaging House to avoid delaying contract fulfillments and/or incurring any additional costs for non-compliance. To locate a military packaging house, either call your local DCMA or in the near future visit our National Database of Military Packaging Houses for a facility near you.

Remember:   Preparation is the key to your success. Train to win! Don't be the weakest link in the National Defense chain. Help us support our troops with excellence!

The United States military is known for its accuracy and attention to detail. The equipment they use is expensive and extremely sensitive. As a result they demand only specifically designed, military-grade materials to be used when packaging and protecting their equipment.
