C. Frequently Asked Questions

When the volume of the cargo is relatively small, the first half of the container may be full, and the second half of the container may be empty. This will cause an unbalanced weight at both ends, and may cause the carton to fall and cause damage. Therefore, we should keep the carton inside the container in a relatively horizontal state, and the drop should not be too large. At least each stage must have a buffer of 2-3 cartons.

If the weight of the carton is not the same, then the heavy one should be placed on the bottom, and it is best to put it on the front, back, and middle to avoid the weight of the two ends of the container being different.

In addition, the last row must be discharged to the doorway, and there must be no obvious gap in the middle.

The inspector is responsible and obliged to remind the factory to do this during the Loading inspection process, otherwise it must be remarked in the report.
