I have a rather large shipment headed to a certain facility and it will need to be distributed between multiple boxes.
If it was just one box- I'd put the packing list inside that one.
But with multiple boxes- do i need more than 1 packing list? Do I need to label the outside of the boxes so that they do not get separated?
Your boxes are likely to be received on a random basis within an enormous warehouse. No one is in charge of, or likely to care, if your boxes are received together.
The outside labels on the boxes are a third form of identifying boxes, and are unnecessary if you have done the rest of the shipment correctly.
