Default Wood Shipping Barrel with Metal I.D. - Railroad? - D.S.P. Chicago Via New Orleans

I am currently researching this shipping barrel with a large metal blue and white tag. The underside of the barrel is covered in metal similar to galvanized tin. Being that it is made from plywood and that it says "Made in Japan" on the last line I suspect its post WWII.

I strongly suspect the tag may refer to transport via railroad, but I am not which one. I see Southern Pacific Transportation Company serviced both of these cities at one point via this article.

Any idea of what it might of contained?
