Answers Ocean Freight Page | 160 2017 Exercise 5.4 (Answer) Estimating the Number of Containers Required Note: Use the ocean container dimensions and capacities in Appendix “ H. 1. A shipment of clothing needs to be transported by ocean container. The shipment will be loose-loaded (un-palletized). Details: 220 cartons of clothing. Dimensions of each carton are 18 in x 18 in x 24 in, the weight of each carton is 30 lb. a) What is the total volume of the shipment? 18 x 18 x 24 x 220 cartons = 1,710,720 in 3 ÷ 61,023.744 = 28.03367 = 28.03 m 3 b) What is the total weight of the shipment? 220 cartons x 30 lb = 6,600 lb x 0.4536 = 2,993.76 = 2,994 kg c) How many and what type(s) of ocean containers do you estimate are required to move this shipment most economically? 1 x 20-ft standard container would be more than enough (within the 28-30 m 3 average). 2,994 kg (within 20,000 kg maximum payload capacity). 2. A shipment of Jeeps needs to be transported by ocean container. Details: 10 Jeeps. Dimensions of each Jeep are 165 in (420 cm) x 70 ½ in (179 cm) x 63 in (161 cm), the weight of each Jeep is 1,800 kg (3,965 lb). Keep upright. a) What is the total volume of the shipment? 4.20 m x 1.79 m x 1.61 m x 10 Jeeps = 121.04 m 3 b) What is the total weight of the shipment? 1,800 kg x 10 Jeeps = 18,000 kg c) How many and what type(s) of ocean containers do you estimate are required to move this shipment most economically? Because of the width of the Jeeps, we need to consider only the length of the vehicle. On this basis, a 20-ft standard container can only hold 1 Jeep, whereas a 40-ft standard container can hold 2 Jeeps. 20-ft standard container is 232 in L ÷ 165 in = 1.5 = 1 40-ft standard container is 474 in L ÷ 165 in = 2.9 = 2
Answers Ocean Freight Page | 161 2017 5 x 40-ft standard containers are required. 24.208 m 3 in each container (within 55- 60 m 3 average). 3,600 kg per container (within 25,000 kg maximum payload capacity). 5 x 40-ft standard containers would be cheaper that 10 x 20-ft standard containers, and less space is wasted.

Answers Ocean Freight Page | 162 2017 Exercise 5.5 (Answer) Estimating Examples Note: R efer to Appendix “ H ” for container dimensions. 1. A customer has 20 pallets of filters, with a total volume of 27 m 3 , and a total weight of 1,700 kg. Estimate the following: a) How many containers are needed? b) What types of containers are needed? The shipment volume falls within the 20-ft standard average volume capacity. The total weight of 1,700 kg falls within the maximum payload of a 20-ft standard container (20,000 kg). Therefore, as an ESTIMATE, 1 x 20-ft standard container will do. 2. The same customer has 200 boxes of feather pillows, un-palletized, with a total volume of 69 m 3 , and a total weight of 4,000 kg. Estimate the following: a) How many containers are needed? b) What types of containers are needed?

### What students are saying

• 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.
