Box Dimensions

Dimensions are given in the sequence of length, width and depth. The dimensions of a box are described based on the opening of an assembled box, which can be located on the top or the side, depending on how it is to be filled. The opening of a box is a rectangle; that is, it has two sets of parallel sides. The longer of the two sides is considered its length, the shorter of the two sides is considered its width. The side looking down into the carton from the opening is considered the depth. Please see the illustrations below.
