Packaging Requirements

Packaging Requirements

D37522-6, “Packaging Instructions,” is intended as the primary packaging standard for use by all suppliers providing products to The Boeing Company and in no way relieves the supplier of product quality or performance. The Enterprise Packaging Team will partner for success with suppliers to ensure compliance with D37522-6.

This standard covers the basic packaging and labeling requirements and instructions followed by all suppliers in the preparation of products for shipment to The Boeing Company and our customers as directed. The standard considers the following criteria in selecting packaging:

  • Ergonomics and safety of employees when removing parts from the packaging
  • Orientation and ease of access to parts when handling
  • Packaging in compliance with Standard Practice for Commercial Packaging (ASTM D3951)

Supplier Management or the procurement organization shall reference D37522-6 in purchase documents as a supplier packaging requirement. This document does not apply to personnel use items, janitorial and basic supplies, and similar commodities that are not intended to be incorporated into Boeing products or services.

Global Routing Guide

Routing Guide

Boeing has procured service providers to host an interactive web tool to be utilized by Boeing suppliers and shippers as a means to obtain the information currently available on the Boeing Shipment Routing Instructions.


In support of Boeing's certification in the World Customs Organization’s nationally recognized supply chain security programs, these security requirements and guidelines are provided to supply chain stakeholders: international shippers, warehouses, transportation service providers, and customs brokers to institute effective security practices. These practices are designed to ensure supply chain security that mitigates the risk of loss, theft, and introduction of contraband that could potentially disrupt the global supply chain and our business.
