II. Elemental Breakdown – Packing

C. When the carton is closed, the UCC128 carton label is printed out and placed on the carton based upon the packing specs for Kohl’s Dot Com.
D. The carton is sealed with clear plastic tape. Any additional cartons that go with the same order are packed and sealed as well.
