Mixed cargo with barrels, example 7

Stowage of these pails between cartons must be considered a packing deficiency. The position of the rear and front pails indicates that not inconsiderable gaps have been left. A disadvantage of all pails, and also of cans, buckets and similar receptacles, is that the handles (1) may press into and damage the bodies of other drums or sensitive items of cargo. It is advisable to use hardboard, boards or similar materials as additional protection and to separate them from other cargoes.
