Galactic Federation Crates are used by the Federation to hold resources. They can be destroyed by a series of Beam shots or a single charged one. They are extremely common and usually hold Missile Ammo, or in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Phazon Units or Ship Missile Ammunition.
Samus Aran encounters many in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes because Squad Bravo took them to the Temple Grounds during the Aether incident. In Corruption, these crates appear on the G.F.S. Olympus and on Norion.
There are also Heavy Galactic Federation Crates, which are larger, have red highlights (in Echoes only) and are sturdier. It takes more than one Charge Beam blast to destroy them, and they often contain more and better supplies than their smaller counterparts.
A Galactic Federation Ordnance Crate is a special container. It is used to protect personal, and possibly explosive, objects. To date, it has only been found in Echoes, where a single one is present in the GFMC Compound and guards a replacement Missile Launcher for Samus Aran. It is a large black box with pulsating yellow accents.
A Secure Galactic Federation Crate is another type. These are also seen solely on Aether, specifically in the Industrial Site. They are indestructible, being "made up of the strongest materials in the cosmos." Their strong composition suggests they are used to guard precious materials.
