Unless it is just holding by a small fraction of the wood, I just superglue the crack. The crack in the tote in the OP’s pic is more on the leading side of the tote, I would guess it has been there almost since the tote was made. If I were to question the strength, I would blow it out with an air gun and add some superglue, clean off any excess and clamp it in the woodworking vise until dry. Just my 2 Cents.
