All the pictures I've found show that the boxes are pretty generic:

The only thing I've noticed is that each individual box is fairly small, so the crew can load/unload them one by one by hand. This would chage if your helicopter is an Mi-26 for example,which can carry the boxes by the pallet load, plus a forklift for unloading them
