By loading in this manner, we see that for every 84 in of floor length used, we can load 4 pallets on the floor. By maximizing the efficiency of loading these crates, we can now get 5 crates per LD7 pallet. Since we are shipping 15 crates, we need a total of 3 x LD7 pallets. Now we need to load the remaining cartons of brochures. We have 1 space on the pallet left to load, 41 in (125 in length of pallet 38 in 46 in = 41 in) x 42 in (88 in width of pallet 46 in crate = 42 in). L x W x H remaining space on pallet: 42 x 41 x 64 L x W x H carton: 18 12 12 = 2.3 x 3.4 x 5.3 = 2 x 3 x 5 = 30 38 in 46 in. 38 in 46 in 88 in LD7 Pallet 125 in crate crate crate crate crate

Answers Air Freight Page | 104 2017 This tells us we can load 30 cartons in the remaining space on 1 x LD7 pallet. However, we also have room on top of the 5 crates in which to load additional cartons. The remaining space above the group of 4 interlocked crates is 84 in x 84 in x 26 in (64 in pallet height 38 in crate height = 26 in). L x W x H remaining space on top of crates: 84 x 84 x 26 L x W x H Carton: 18 12 12 = 4.7 x 7 x 2.2 = 4 x 7 x 2 = 56 This tells us we can load 56 cartons in the remaining space on top of the group of 4 crates. In this case, we are not tight for space, so to equal out the shipment amongst all 3 x LD7 pallets, we will only load 50 cartons on each LD7 pallet. 88 in LD7 Pallet 125 in crate crate crate crate crate Cartons 3 cartons long x 2 cartons wide x 5 layers high = 30 cartons 88 in LD7 Pallet 125 in crate crate crate Cartons 3 cartons long x 2 cartons wide x 5 layers high = 30 cartons Cartons 5 cartons long x 4 cartons wide x 1 layer high = 20 cartons

Answers Air Freight Page | 105 2017 L et’s verify the weights to ensure we are not over the capacity of an LD7 pallet: 5 crates x 1,500 lb = 7,500 lb 50 cartons x 30 lb = 1,500 lb TOTAL per LD7 pallet = 9,000 lb This is within the capacity of 1 x LD7 pallet (max is 10,000 lb). Now we have confirmed that the dimensions and weights for this shipment are within the capacities of 3 x LD7 pallets. Container Loading Plan Container Type No. of Pieces Actual Weight Maximum Weight LD 7 pallet 5 crates + 50 cartons 9,000 lb 10,000 lb LD 7 pallet 5 crates + 50 cartons 9,000 lb 10,000 lb LD 7 pallet 5 crates + 50 cartons 9,000 lb 10,000 lb TOTAL: 3 x LD7 pallets 15 crates + 150 cartons 27,000 lb 30,000 lb Note: There are other alternatives to the above, but generally use the KISS Principle (Keep It Short and Simple). Start with the heaviest/largest cargo, spread the load amongst all containers, and then fill the remaining space equally with the rest of the cargo. The above container loading plan is the simplest, as it spreads the cargo evenly amongst all 3 x LD7 pallets.

    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.
