Spanish term or phrase: empado
"... solicito tener el medicamento en una caja listo para ser verificado y empado para su retorno."

This is in a Colombian text, and I would very much like to know what "empado" means. I am assuming it is not a typing error.

Thanks!

Most likely a typo for "empacado" (en España me parece que "empaquetado" se emplea con más frecuencia).
