A total of 16 pallets have been loaded. a) Do you have any space left in the container? b) How many pallets can you fit in the container? Yes, 52 in of floor space at the door. You can load 2 more pallets at the door with another 2 on top of them. Total 20 pallets can fit in a 20-ft standard container and the total weight is 17,800 kg, which is under the maximum payload allowed for a 20-ft standard container. 42 in 48 in 42 in 48 in 48 in.

Answers Ocean Freight Page | 166 2017 2. Answer the following questions, using the ocean container dimensions and capacities in Appendix “ H ” and the conversion tables in Appendix “B.” A shipment of steel rods needs to be transported by ocean container: x 22 steel rods un-palletized x Dimensions of each rod are 86 in L x 38 in W x 45 in H x Weight of each rod is 1,000. What type(s) and how many ocean containers are required to move this shipment most economically? Step 1: estimate the containers required. 86 in x 38 in x 45 in x 22 steel rods = 32,353,20 in 3 ÷ 61,023.744 = 53.017395 m 3 = 53.017 m 3 The estimated number of containers needed is 1 x 40-ft standard container. Divide the L x W x H into the dimensions of a 40-ft standard container. 474 x 90 x 90 = 5.5 x 2.37 x 2 86 38 45 = 5 x 2 x 2 = 20 Therefore, you CANNOT load this cargo into a 40-ft standard container. Step 2: i s there a more efficient way to load your customer’s freight? YES. Remember the rule of 90? 86 is very close to the width of the container (90 in). 474 x 90 x 90 = 12.47 x 1.05 x 2 38 86 45 = 12 x 1 x 2 = 24 Therefore, the cargo will fit in 1 x 40-ft standard container. Verify the weight of 1,000 kg x 22 = 22,000 kg, which is within the maximum payload capacity of a 40- ft standard container (25,000 kg). HOWEVER The height of 45 inches double stacked equals exactly the internal height of the container. In this case, when getting close to the maximums, it is advisable to check the actual dimensions of the container specific to the carrier as there is some variance. It would be better to load this cargo into a 40-ft HC container so that any variation from the carrier equipment is covered.

Answers Ocean Freight Page | 167 2017 Exercise 5.7 (Answer) Calculating the Actual Number of Containers Required Answer the following questions: Note: Use the ocean containe r dimensions and capacities in Appendix “ H ” and refer to the conversion tables in Appendix “B . 1. A shipment of auto parts needs to be transported by ocean container. Details: 24 crates of auto parts, the dimensions of each crate are 88 in x 39 in x 40 in, the weight of each crate is 1,000 kg. Keep upright. How many and what type(s) of ocean containers are required to move this shipment most economically? Estimate the containers required: 88 in x 39 in x 40 in x 24 = 3,294,720 in 3 ÷ 61,023.744 = 53.9907 = 53.99 m 3 This is just above the capacity of a 40-ft standard container , so let’s use it as a starting point.

    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.
