The use of in export shipments makes the transport and handling easier and faster. The crane and gantry are commonly used in handling . The forklift is also used at the docks and container terminals to move the 20′ and shorter dry cargo , which are equipped with forklift pockets—fork pockets or tine pockets.
The ports worldwide handle over 100 million TEUs annually. The unit TEU (twenty-foot unit) is used to express the relative number of based on the length of a 20′ container. For example, 100 of 20′ is 100 TEUs, while 100 of 40′ is 200 TEUs.
The container ships used in the traffic are designed with the cells ( with cell guides) a honeycomb wherein the are placed, thus named cellular container ships.
The ships are bigger and faster nowadays, those used in the deep-sea voyage (long haul). Those rated below 20 knots are common in the short-sea voyage (short haul). The knot is a unit of ship’s speed, being one nautical mile per hour. One nautical mile is 1.852 . A ship that steams at 20 knots is moving at a speed of about 37 per hour.
Some cellular container ships in the 20 to 23 knot range can 2,000 to 3,000 TEUs. Some rated 24 knots have a carrying capacity of 4,000 to 4,900 TEUs and load of 56,000 to 75,000 metric tons. The length of the vessel can be about 900′ (275 meters) and the beam—the widest part of a ship—can be about 125′ (38 meters). The size of vessel is huge compare to a standard football field having a goal line of 300′ (91.44 meters) and an end line of 160′ (48.77 meters).
are designed to the carriage of goods without reloading. They are fitted with devices their ready handling, in the transport and (the word “” is also written with two letter ‘s’ as “”).
The prefix ‘multi-‘ means at least two or many. The term mode refers to the way or means. transport means at least two different modes of . In export shipping, it refers to delivery using a of usually ocean and land (rail or road) carriers, and using only one shipping document known as through bill of lading or combined transport bill of lading, issued usually by the ocean shipping company or its agent.
Theft, Pilferage, Damage, and Insurance
The cargo security of container shipments against theft, pilferage and damage is improved, in the CY/CY container service. Hence, the cargo insurance in a container shipment generally is lower than in a break-bulk shipment.
The metal seal that is provided by the carrier and used in securing the container doors is , but it is easily removed. In some countries, the importer’s customs broker may use padlocks to secure the doors of container for their client once the FCL (full container load) shipment reached the port.
Importer’s Specified Container Shipping Company
Importers may specify in the purchase order and/or the letter of credit (L/C) the container shipping company or the vessel to use for their shipment. Big importers, such as chain stores, and large shippers may have a contract with the shipping company to deliver an annual minimum TEU (twenty-foot unit) at preferred or freight rates.
Container Size, Number and Load Options
The cargo weight and cube influence the size and number of needed for an order. The term cube refers to the cubic of cargo.
From the analysis in the Case Sample: Container Selection (1) below, it is obvious that not all 1,500 cartons (2,250 cu. ft. or 63.713 CBM) will fit into two 20′ or one 40′ standard container. A solution is to request the importer to adjust the order to 1,365 cartons (2,047.5 cu. ft or 57.979 CBM) to make one 40′ FCL (full container load), in case the high cube container (the hicube) is not available. The alternate solution is to use a 40′ hicube. However,
not all shipping companies and sea routes have the hicube,
there are legal to the overall height of a vehicle in certain areas (e.g, tunnel and underpass) and countries, and
the FCL (full container load) freight rate of hicube is higher than the standard container.
Some of the shipping companies having high cube include:
Hanjin (South Korea)
“K” Line (Japan)
OOCL (Hong Kong-Taiwan)
