Loading a container correctly can help to prevent harm to your goods in transit. The products must be secured against rutting and hitching on the fragile ocean leg when the container passes via rail.
“Load, stow and counts” means the manufacturer is responsible for the packing, loading and counting of the container, the number of cartons in the container and the cartons securement. “Pack, stow and count vessels” is an agreement to load a container. Where the container is not properly packed, either Prime Freight or the carrier is not responsible.
Take into account the following instructions when loading a container: Stack boxes to distribute pressure similar to a locking pattern of the brick.
Heavy loads of lighter freight at the top on the bottom.
