Container Handling Tips
A "loaded container" by description is a container other than in the tare or empty condition, in reference to container handling. Unless otherwise confirmed, containers should be treated as loaded. To be able to maintain safety, when securing or handling containers, environmental conditions like for instance wind must be taken into consideration. The term loaded refers to the maximum gross weigh rating of the container. In order to make certain that the centre of gravity is kept as low and central as possible, the cargo must be equally distributed throughout the container.

In order to maintain safety, having an evenly distributed load is beneficial to avoid excessive tilting, and lack of vehicle stability. A load which is even helps to avoid unacceptable vehicle axle loading, and unacceptable load concentrations.

With the load distribution in the container, the eccentricity of the center of gravity varies. It is very important that the designers of containers and handling machinery consider during the engineering process. For instance, when 60 percent of the load by mass is distributed in 50% of the length of the container measured from one end of the machinery, the eccentricity corresponds to 5 percent.

In order to make sure that the machine used is right for the load, care has to be taken to make certain it is safely attached to the container and that the container is free to be handled. Particular attention needs to be paid to the risk of the container tilting due to the eccentricity of the center of gravity. When raising any container whose centre of gravity is mobile or eccentric, like a bulk container, a tank container a thermal container with a refrigerating unit or a container with a liquid bulk bag, either clip on or integral, or any container with a hanging cargo, extreme care should be taken when raising these.

There are a lot of methods for utilizing handling containers that can be taken into consideration. Then again, there needs to be an assessment of the machinery means by which the container is to be utilized. With respect to global container standards, the methods of operation are foreseen. Safety is vital in each and every situation and time needs to be taken prior to starting in order to make certain all situations are handled in the best possible way and overall efficiency is maintained.
