How to Load the Container Correctly

Here are some key tips for properly loading a shipping container:

Optimize Cubic Space

Stack items vertically and make use of all available cubic feet. Fill up the rear first going towards the front.

Pack Tightly

Eliminate shifting by packing tightly without gaps. Use padding around boxes and furniture. Doing so will also prevent damages to the items you ship.

Secure the Load

Properly secure cargo with straps, dunnage bags, lumber bracing, etc. Attach to D-rings on container walls.

Protect Delicate Items

Wrap fragile items like glassware securely in blankets and bubble wrap. Use waterproof coverings to prevent exposure to moisture or rain.

Inventory Items Carefully

Keep a detailed packing list with photos documenting the condition of items and cargo placement. This activity will help you unload items more easily.

Place Easily Accessible Items Last

Ensure the items you need can be accessed easily without unloading other boxes or items first. Load golf carts, appliances, and similar items last.

Balance the Weight

Place heavier items like appliances on the bottom and lighter boxes on top. Distribute the weight evenly from side-to-side to avoid problems with shifting or tipping.

Keep Weight Limits in Mind

Never exceed maximum floor weight loads or gross container weight capacities. For a 20-foot shipping container, the gross container capacity is 24 metric tons or 52,910 lbs. - a figure that takes into account both the container and cargo weights. This is the capacity limit for safe transport before you exceed the legal weight limit and compromise structural stability.
