Palletized cargoes, mixed cargo,
example 2

Even if the packers continue to pack the container compactly, using the squared lumber upright constitutes a risk.

The upright (3) is too long and therefore lifts up the package (2) so it doesn't lie flat on the case (1). Slight jolting during transport could loosen the upright (3) and the package (2) might sag into the gap and jam there.
The securing deficiencies may be remedied without much effort.


The upright matches the height of the case and has been recessed (a) at the bottom end so that the profile of the bottom side rail does not hinder the upright from fitting into a container corrugation (b). The upright is fixed using another upright against the case (c) and two crosspieces (d) and (e), in such a way that it cannot slip out of the corrugation. The package (2) thus rests evenly on the upright and the case (f); at the same time, the case (1) is secured.
There is a series of possible ways of fixing the upright, some of which are illustrated here.
