What is an Overpack? 

An Overpack is defined in US Department of Transportation regulations 49 CFR 171.8 as "an enclosure that is used by a single consignor to provide protection or convenience in handling of a package or to consolidate two or more packages." 

Translated this means - an Overpack is a bigger container into which a smaller one may be placed. There are many reasons for this, for example, for protection in shipping, for convenience, or just to consolidate packages.
