Abstract

An assembly of parts which are common to use in a number of countries are packaged securely in a box which has openable compartments for later insertion of other parts and manuals which are customized for a specific country of use. Box 10 includes a major internal area 11 which contains a generic device. This generic device is usable, for example, in a number of different countries. This box is securely packed, and then is banded to pallet 12. The box includes a number of internal compartments 13 and 14 which are accessible through door 15. These compartments are for use in holding other parts which are needed in order for the generic device to be usable in specific countries. These other parts will be used when the device is unpacked, in order to customize the generic device for use in a specific country.
