International Fiberboard Case Code: 03 SeriesTelescope boxes usually consist of a separate top, or top and bottom, that fit over each other or a separate body.

0301 "ES" End Slotted
0301 Full Telescope Design Style Container (FTD)
The two-piece box is made from two scored and slotted blanks (trays)
0310 Design Style Container with Cover (DSC)
A tube forms the body. The two interchangeable covers are usually design style. The pieces are shipped flat to the user, who opens the tube and sets up the covers.
This style is frequently used for tall or heavy products that would be difficult to lower into a box. The item is placed on the bottom cover, and the tube is lowered over the product.
0320 Full Telescope Half Slotted Container (FTHS)
The two-piece box is made from two half slotted containers.
0325 Interlocking Double Cover Container (IC)
Flanges on the body, folded together (interlocked/baseloid) with flanges on the covers, are held in place with strapping.
The style offers the same ease of packing provided by the double-cover box, with the assurance that the covers will not separate from the body.
This feature is advantageous for moving large or heavy products such as washers, dryers, refrigerators, water heaters, vending machines and some hazardous materials.

Same as 0310 with additional panels.
