Cartons, mixed cargo, example 6

  Packing deficiencies with a high risk of damage

In the event of an extended period of bad weather during maritime transport, the carton (d) could be caused considerable damage by the package (c) or the relatively large wooden case (e). It is essential for the gap between (g) and (h) in the background to be filled and the same applies to the very large gap in front of package (g). Package (f) has been contaminated with liquids, as has package (d).
Packages (a) and (b) ought to have been placed where (d) is located. Gaps could have been filled. Once the surface had been levelled, packages (d) and (e) could have been placed on top. Package (f) ought to have been packed somewhere else.
