The total shipment volume is near the capacity of 3 x 40-ft standard containers (3 x 50 m 3 = 150 m 3 ). Since we mostly have palletized cargo, with some un-palletized (loose) cargo, we might be able to squeeze it all in. Let’s use 3 x 40 -ft standard containers as the starting point. How can we load our custo mer’s freight most efficiently? i) Start with the largest and heaviest cargo, and begin determining a container loading plan. Remember the rule of 90? 86 in is close to the width of a container (90 in), therefore, let’s turn the crates 90 0 . 474 x 90 x 90 = 10.1 x 1.1 x 1.6 47 86 58 = 10 x 1 x 1 = 10 crates per 40-ft standard container (3 x 40-ft standard containers required) Let’s verify the weight : 22,000 kg (2,200 kg x 10 crates) is within the maximum payload capacity of a 40-ft standard container (25,000 kg). Now we have confirmed that the dimensions and weights for the first part of the shipment are within the capacities of 3 x 40-ft standard containers.

Answers Ocean Freight Page | 173 2017 ii) Let’s look at the remaining cargo. We only have 4 inches to the side of the crates, and 4 inches at the door, so we cannot load any of the stuffed toys on the same level as the crates. They must be loaded on top of the crates. How much room do we have left in the container on top of the crates? 90 in 58 in = 32 in Therefore, 32 inches is the height of the remaining space we have left in the container, on top of the crates. How many cartons can go into the remaining space in a 40-ft standard container? 474 x 90 x 32 = 19.8 x 3.8 x 1.3 24 24 24 = 19 x 3 x 1 = 57 cartons per the remaining space in a 40-ft standard container (3 x 40-ft standard containers required) Let’s verify the weight : 3 kg x 57 cartons = 171 kg, which is within the remaining maximum payload capacity of a 40-ft standard container (25,000 kg 22,000 kg = 3,000 kg). Now we have confirmed that the dimensions and weights for both parts of the shipment are within the capacities of 3 x 40-ft standard containers.

    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.
