Container Handling Suggestions
A "loaded container" by definition 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 like wind has to be considered. The term loaded is the maximum gross weigh rating of the container. In order to make sure that the centre of gravity is kept as low and central as possible, the cargo should be distributed throughout the container.

Having an evenly distributed load it is helpful to prevent lack of vehicle stability, and excessive tilting, so as to maintain safety. A load which is even helps to avoid unacceptable vehicle axle loading, and unacceptable load concentrations.

With the distribution of load in the container, the eccentricity of the center of gravity varies. It is extremely essential that the designers of containers and handling equipment take this into account during the engineering process. Like for instance, when 60% of the load by mass is distributed in 50 percent of the length of the container measured from one end of the equipment, the eccentricity corresponds to 5 percent.

Make certain that the container is free to be handled and care needs to be taken to make certain it is safely attached to the container, in order to make certain that the machinery used is right for the load. Specific attention needs 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 mobile or eccentric, such as 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, great care should be taken when lifting these.

There are lots of methods for utilizing handling containers which could be taken into account. However, there needs to be an assessment of the equipment means by which the container is to be utilized. With respect to global container standards, the methods of operation are foreseen. Safety is paramount in each and every situation and time should be taken before starting in order to make sure all situations are handled in the best way possible and overall efficiency is maintained.
