Answers Ocean Freight Page | 177 2017 Exercise 5.10 (Answer) Consolidation Examine each shipment separately: 1. Baby formula: 1,200 cartons, 18 in x 12 in x 12 in each, 30 lb each. Total shipment volume = 50.976 m 3 2. Toilet paper: 1,000 cartons, 24 in x 18 in x 18 in each, 12 lb each. Total shipment volume = 127.440 m 3 The total volume of the consolidation is = 50.976 + 127.440 = 178.416 m 3 We have loose cargo, and estimate that we can load 55 m 3 into a 40-ft container. Estimate: 178.416 ÷ 55 = 3.24 x 40-ft containers. As we can see from our average volume capacity, sometimes you can load 60 m 3 of loose cargo into a 40-ft container. It all depends on the carton sizes and compatibility. If we use 60 m 3 as our estimated capacity, then we would need: 178.416 ÷ 60 = 2.974 x 40-ft containers. We might be able to load all the cargo into 3 x 40-ft containers. Start with the paper. How many cases can we load into a 40-ft container? L x W x H container: 474 x 90 x 90 = 19.75 x 5 x 5 L x W x H carton: 24 18 18 = 19 x 5 x 5 = 475 We can load at least 475 cartons of paper into 1 x 40-ft standard container. Let’s look at how much floor space we have used: 19 rows of cartons deep by 5 cartons across by 5 cartons high. Floor space = 19 x 24 = 456 in Floor space at door = 474 456 = 18 in At the door, we will turn our cartons 90 degrees, such that the length becomes the width and vice versa, to utilize space at the door. At the door, we can load 15 more cartons. They are 3 across and 5 high.

Answers Ocean Freight Page | 178 2017 The result is that we can load 475 + 15 = 490 cartons of toilet paper into 1 x 40-ft standard container. Therefore, we will pack 2 x 40-ft standard containers with 980 cartons of toilet paper. This still leaves us with 20 cartons to load. Now, let’s look at the baby formula and determine how many cartons we can load into a 40-ft container: L x W x H container: 474 x 90 x 90 = 26.3 x 7.5 x 7.5 L x W x H pallet: 18 12 12 = 26 x 7 x 7 = 1,274 We have 1,200 cartons to ship, so we know that we can easily load the cargo into a 40-ft standard container . We still have 20 cartons of paper to load. Let’s go back to the baby formula and see if we can load the cargo more efficiently. What if we turn the carton such that the length becomes the width and vice versa? We have: L x W x H container: 474 x 90 x 90 = 39.5 x 5 x 7.5 L x W x H pallet: 12 18 12 = 39 x 5 x 7 = 1,365 By turning the carton, we will be able to load 1,365 cartons into a 40-ft standard container. We only need space for 1,200 cartons. We need to determine how much floor space will be used up in the loading of the baby formula and see if there is enough room to load the remaining 20 cartons of paper.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
