Container Handling Suggestions
The meaning of a "loaded container" for the purpose of container handling and securing; is a container other than in the tare or empty condition. Containers must be treated as loaded, unless otherwise confirmed. To be able to maintain safety, when securing or handling containers, environmental conditions like for instance wind should be taken into account. The term loaded refers to the container's maximum gross weigh rating. In order to guarantee that the centre of gravity is kept as low and central as possible, the cargo should be distributed all around the container.

In order to maintain safety, having an equally distributed cargo is beneficial to prevent excessive tilting, and lack of vehicle stability. A cargo which is even helps to prevent unacceptable vehicle axle loading, and unacceptable load concentrations.

With the distribution of load in the container, the eccentricity of the center of gravity differs. It is very essential that the designers of containers and handling machines consider during the engineering process. 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 machinery, the eccentricity corresponds to 5 percent.

To be able to make sure that the machinery utilized is right for the cargo, care needs to be taken to make sure it is safely attached to the container and that the container is free to be handled. Particular attention should be paid to the possibility of the container tilting due to the eccentricity of the center of gravity. When lifting any container whose centre of gravity is eccentric or mobile, like a bulk container, a tank container or a container with a liquid bulk bag or a thermal container with a refrigerating unit, either integral or clip on, or any container with a hanging load, great care should be taken when raising these.

There are a lot of methods for utilizing handling containers which can be taken into consideration. Nevertheless, there has to be an evaluation of the machine means by which the container is to be used. With regards to global container standards, the methods of operation are envisaged. Safety is paramount in every situation and time must be taken before starting in order to make certain overall efficiency is maintained and all situations are handled in the best way possible.
