We present formulation and heuristic solution of a container packing problem observed in a household equipment factory's sales and logistics department. The main feature of the presented MIP model is combining several types of constraints following from the considered application field. The developed best-fit heuristic is tested on the basis of a computational experiment. The obtained results show that the heuristic is capable of constructing good solutions in a very short time. Moreover, the
