Pallet Stowing Patterns in a Container


The pallet stowing patterns [L], [M] and [N] presented below as viewed from the top of the container:

Pattern [N] 
 

Pallet Yield in a Container


Referring to the Diagram: Palletized Cargo and Diagram: Container, and the pallet orientations [1] and [2] below,


Pallet Orientation

[1]     Y || D       Z || W            
[2] Y || W Z || D  

LEGEND:
  • "||"  means parallel to
  • "Y" represents the side of pallet
  • "Z" represents the side of pallet
  • "D" represents the internal length (deep) of container
  • "W" represents the internal width (wide) of container


a comparison of the pallet yield in the 20' and 40' dry cargo containers, based on the total height of each loaded pallet of about 60"

and the internal dimension of 20' container

D = 232"
W = 92"

and the internal dimension of 40' container

D = 473"
W = 92"

is presented in the Table: Pallet Yield below:

The    above indicates the stowing pattern is inapplicable or unnecessary due to the large-sized pallet or pallet with equal sides.

The % Floor Utilized is based on the highest Total Pallets (i.e., the highest total number of pallets in a container for the given pallet size, stowing pattern and pallet orientation).

Stack Loading of Pallets


Referring to the Table: Pallet Yield above, the number of pallets in a container can be doubled by double stacking of pallets, but at the expense of the total height and the gross weight of each loaded pallet. Stack loading is possible only if the cargo underneath can stand up to the compression from the overlaying pallet, and the center of gravity does not exceed half the height of the container.

To prevent the cargo beneath the stack from being torn and damaged, use dunnage like plywood, compressed particle board, fiberboard, and matting, to separate the lower and upper pallets. L-shaped wood or steel corner supports can be used to give added strength to the packages.

To prevent the pallets from shifting and crushing inside the container, block and brace the pallets at the voids with lumber and plywood, or secure them with chains, ropes and straps to the bull rings at the upper and lower corners of the side walls of the container.


Interlocking of Export Packs


Interlock the export packs (e.g. cartons or bags) on a pallet and inside a container wherever possible. Please see the Diagram: Interlocked Cargo below. The interlocked cargo provides load stability, giving a compact stow that reduces the potential of collapse with movement on land, air and at sea.


Diagram:  Interlocked Cargo





-------------------------
Cargo can be stretch
wrapped with plastic
film to protect against
dirt, theft or loss, and
to stand up to rough
handling in transit.
