1. The container itself is limited.
There is a maximum weight on the open door of each container, such as MAXGROSS:30480KGS. It means that your suitcase can't carry more than this weight. Tare weight --20GP: 2200KGS,40 for: 3.720-4200kgs, some HQ will have MAXGROSS:32000KGS.
This is the biggest container body can withstand strength, loading exceeds this limit, variant possible enclosure, floor, roof beam bending damage, such as all the resulting losses will be borne by all loading people. At present, most professional container terminals in China are equipped with automatic weighers. Therefore, as long as the container loading exceeds the limit of the box body, the dock will refuse to accept the container. Therefore, it is recommended to see the weight limit on the container before packing, so as to avoid unnecessary backpacking.
If the goods are truly overweight and cannot be separated, then you can choose the overweight box. Increase here is heavy fees, general ordinary dry dock/yard will ship company box stacking together, if you want to choose one special compound tank (as previously talked about 20 increase ark), wharf, yard must sequentially, the resulting choose ark fee generally with specified ark fee same price.
Container transportation is a multi-sectoral collaborative operation process, so there are some other factors that need to be considered in addition to the limitation of container body itself.
2. The shipping company is limited.
Generally, the weight policy of each shipping company is different, and the standard is not to damage the container.
Balance between space and weight. Each container ship has a certain cabin and weight limit, but on a certain route, the shipping space and weight are not always well balanced. Conflicts often occur in the heavy stuff more concentrated in north China, the weight of the ship has arrived, the shipping space is less, in order to make up for the loss of shipping, shipping companies tend to take the price strategy, that is, how much cargo weighing more than tons after extra freight. Also have a shipping company not with his own boat, but to buy other ship company shipping space to transport, the limitation on the weight will be more strictly, because the space between the shipping company to buy or sell a is in accordance with the 1 teu = 14 tons or 16 tons standard to calculate, more than the weight of not to give into the boat.
During the explosion period, according to the different heat of the route, the shipping company will lower the limit of each box type.
When booking the cabin, we should ask the forwarder about the weight limit of the shipping company at the latest shipment. If the goods are not confirmed and the goods are loaded again, there is a risk. Some shipping companies will not have any room for communication after being overweight, so that the consignor will directly tow the goods, leave the port, take out the goods and then weigh them again. These costs are out of control.
The Hong Kong area is limited.
It mainly depends on the loading of machinery and equipment on the dock and yard.
After the container ship is docked, the crane is usually required to carry out the loading and unloading operation, and then it is hauled to the container yard by truck and then lifted off by the forklift truck. If the weight of the container more than mechanical load, you will make it difficult to the wharf and yard of homework, so, for some of the small port equipment is relatively backward, the shipping company usually told the weight of the port in advance, don't accept more than the limit.
4. Supporting line or highway limit.
Done inland points were the least in the United States, the United States highway transportation weight is very strict, because a lot of container at the dock after unloading need to use card road to inland, so the road weight also become limit the weight of the container shipping company reason, of course, only do the dock.
The weight requirements of the goods to the U.S. line are very strict, and the weight limit is mainly affected by the limited weight of the inland point of the United States. The general cabinet is 17.3 tons, and the high cabinet is 19.5 tons. But depending on the port, there are different restrictions.
5. The route limit is heavy.
Different routes, ship company is according to the cargo handling capacity of the order and the goods export types and different heat to arrange, in addition to the port of destination equipment operation load problem, the ark of the different routes size weight also have different nature.
This is mainly divided into Hong Kong area overweight, the shipping company overweight, the destination port is overweight.
1. The shipping company is overweight.
Consult with shipowner, pay excess weight fee, other press normal walk.
2. The port area has its own regulations for being overweight.
If you find that you are overweight when you enter the port, you need to negotiate with the port area to pay the extra fee plus manual handling fee or the reloading of the container.
3. The port of destination is overweight.
The fine may be settled within a certain range after being overweight. If the weight is serious, the crane cannot be loaded on the way and can only be transferred to the nearby port or back.
