Why does it matter what it's in? Plywood would work fine. Put some rope 
handles on it though and make sure the plywood box wont come apart.

Subject: [Amps] Shipping a heavy HV Transformer

I'm selling a HV Transformer  and have questions on the best way to
pack. The transformer weighs 85LBs and is approximately a 12 inch cube .
At this time I have it bolted to a 5/8 inch plywood pallet.

I know Alpha and Acom ship their transformers in a heavy duty cardboard
box . I'm not sure where to find a heave duty box ?  I could use 3/8 or
7/16 plywood plus wood screws to build a nice strong box  but I'm
thinking UPS or Fedex wants it to be in a cardboard box ?

Your thoughts and ideas are appreciated
