Cartons on pallets, example 5

  Container packing deficiencies due to gaps and goods at risk
of tipping

The various cargo dimensions, some of which are not suitable for container packing, mean that gaps are left which absolutely must be filled. This is particularly important for goods or pallets which are at risk of tipping and which are packed in layers without adequate shrink or other wrapping.
  Gaps must always be filled in. If necessary, interlayer
should be laid.

The gaps in the floor layer are more obvious from this perspective and something must be done about them. If a second layer of cargo is to be stowed, interlayer dunnage of wood or comparable materials must be laid.
