Container Handling Tips
The meaning of a "loaded container" for the purpose of securing and container handling; is a container other than in the empty or tare condition. Containers must be treated as loaded, unless otherwise confirmed. In order to maintain safety, when handling or securing containers, environmental conditions such as wind must be taken into account. The term loaded is the maximum gross weigh rating of the container. To be able to make certain that the centre of gravity is kept as central and low as possible, the load has to be distributed all over the container.

Having an evenly distributed cargo it is helpful to prevent lack of vehicle stability, and excessive tilting, in order to maintain safety. An even cargo helps to prevent unacceptable load concentrations, and unacceptable vehicle axle loading.

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

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 used is perfect for the load. Particular attention must be paid to the possibility 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, 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 load, extreme care must be taken when lifting these.

There are many methods for utilizing handling containers that can be taken into consideration. Nevertheless, 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 paramount in every situation and time should be taken prior to starting in order to make sure all situations are handled in the best way possible and overall efficiency is maintained.
