In stuffing operations you can’t leave empty room inside the container. When it is completely filled living no empty spaces and the product packing is uniform there is no problem. But when the cargo is not sufficient to fill a container it needs to be properly tied and wired with ropes and extenders or anchored by the filling of the spaces with wooden racks or platforms, props, air bags or any other structure that keeps the cargo from moving inside the container and getting damaged as well as damaging the container. In container stuffing it is necessary to take into account equipment’s point of balance to avoid problems and accidents, since cargo that does not respect that aspect won’t give the container the necessary balance to be properly manipulated by the moving gears. If a merchant presents irregular packing or weight differences within each other there is the need to take special care with the stuffing to avoid weight excess in one of the sides. Heavier cargo must be put under the lighter ones and if they are in a small quantity they must be placed in the center of the container to preserve its point of balance and give stability. When there isn’t enough cargo to fill an entire container, the floor must be the first place to be filled and never the back of it. Stuffing can be accomplished manually volume by volume or using a forklift and pallets to transport cargo inside the container or even a conveyor belt in the case of roofless containers. Another concern for stuffing is about IMO hazardous load because they have specific legislations and restrictions about packing and quantity.
