New suppliers to Walmart are sometimes confused about the different terms used for Walmart packaging.
Walmart’s hierarchy of packaging has four straight-forward levels:
- EACH – A unit intended for individual sale.
- PACK – A group of individual units, together in one package. Several PACKS may go into a CASE.
- CASE – A standard shipping unit.
- PALLET – A load of several CASES.
The confusion happens because two of the terms (PACK and CASE) have many different names, and these terms are often used interchangeably — even by Walmart staff — and can have shades of subtle differences.
This free download will help sort this out the different names for PACK and CASE and the variations of each.
