Container Handling Suggestions
A "loaded container" by description is a container other than in the empty or tare condition, in reference to container handling. Unless otherwise confirmed, containers must be treated as loaded. To be able to maintain safety, when securing or handling containers, environmental conditions such as wind should be considered. The term loaded refers to the container's maximum gross weigh rating. In order to ensure that the centre of gravity is kept as low and central as possible, the cargo must be distributed all around the container.

Having an equally distributed cargo it is beneficial to prevent excessive tilting, and lack of vehicle stability, so as to maintain safety. An even cargo helps to prevent unacceptable load concentrations, and unacceptable vehicle axle loading.

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

Make certain that the container is free to be handled and care has to be taken to make sure it is safely attached to the container, in order to make sure that the machinery utilized is right for the cargo. Specific attention has to be paid to the possibility of the container tilting because of the eccentricity of the center of gravity. When raising any container whose centre of gravity is eccentric or mobile, like for instance a tank container, a bulk container or a container with a liquid bulk bag or a thermal container with a refrigerating unit, either clip on or integral, or any container with a hanging load, extreme care must be taken when lifting these.

There are a lot of methods for utilizing handling containers that can be taken into account. Nonetheless, there has to be an assessment of the machinery means by which the container is to be utilized. With respect to worldwide container standards, the methods of operation are envisaged. Safety is paramount in every situation and time should be taken before starting in order to make certain all situations are handled in the best way possible and overall efficiency is maintained.
