Seminar: packaging, packing and securing in containers

Start 9 Academy 9 Packaging, packing and securing in the container
Containers are indispensable in the international transport of goods. As standardized transport containers, they are ideal for road, rail and sea transport. Thanks to their standardized steel construction, they can be gripped, lifted and moved. The cargo often remains in the highly stable, watertight container for weeks.

While hardly anything can happen to it on the outside, all sorts of things happen on the inside, because 20′ and 40′ ISO standard containers are closed, unventilated systems. Inside, the cargo is exposed to considerable climatic stresses.

The causes are water-binding packaging materials, fluctuating outside temperatures, sun, wind and rain. they can cause considerable moisture damage. Added to this are transport and cargo handling stresses.

This makes professional container stowage and load securing all the more important. In the BFSV seminar, you will therefore learn how to pack, pack and secure goods in different containers so that the goods can be transported by truck, freight train or container ship without damage.

  • which loads act on packages during transport in containers (combined transports)
  • which technical and climatic properties ISO standard containers have
  • how to design packaging that is suitable for the stresses
  • how to secure shipments with adapted load securing according to the new CTU Code

Group of participants
The BFSV training course on packing and securing container loads primarily serves employees in packing companies and packing departments. The knowledge acquired here benefits everyone who packs goods for export themselves or has them packed and loaded.
In addition, we address packaging planners who have to develop and calculate packaging suitable for containers. For them, as for warehouse keepers and exporters, the focus on TUL and container climate is significant.
