As Pelmar used machinery is generally dispatched from one location around the world to another, it usually requires the utilization of certain types of containers which are selected carefully and efficiently in order to extensively diminish costs for the customer. Each containerization project is planned by Pelmar well-experienced engineers in terms of weights & volume and handled by professional riggers who utilize advanced containerization methods with its well-equipped loading & lashing gear.
There are certain consideration which each of our experienced riggers take into account in order to prevent the equipment inside from being damaged or lost overboard. The best are as follows:
· Marking each of the items professionally and wisely in order to assist installation in the client end.
· Using advanced lashing equipment including high strength steel cords and wood stoppers for stabilizing the equipment under the tremendous forces during shipment.
· Considering weight & volume parameters as proper weights dispersion is mandatory to avoid overweight on certain areas over the container
Containers are standardized cargo units. They are manufactured in a large variety of sizes and types, each designed to meet specific cargo and transportation requirements. Their length is usually 20 or 40 feet. The term "high-cube" usually refers to a standard size container that has a height of 9 feet 6 inches. Open top container is Suitable for high large piece cargo that cannot be loaded through container doors such as machinery, sheet glass, marble, building materials and lumber.
The ISO standard for containers defines dimensions, both internal and external, and load ratings. All containers have framework and corner posts fitted with corner castings. The castings at each corner of the container support the container's weight.
The dimensions & weights limitations are as follow:
