Mil-Std covers the full sweep of military packaging and preservation. The codes can be found in the standard and create a contractual obligation for the contractor. Mil-Std does invoke Mil-Std for package marking and it also provides an inspection regime and criteria for packaging operations. ASTM D is the commercial specification for packaging performance and specifies physical performance criteria. It is more generic and provides more leeway for the contractor in terms of which materials and methods are employed to package items for shipment and storage.
