Poor practices in the overall cargo transport unit (CTU) packing process, including not just load distribution and cargo securing, but also the workflow from classification and documentation through to declaration and effective data transfer, are estimated to cost the transport and logistics industry in excess of US$6 billion annually.
The purpose of this guide is to facilitate the proper packing, transport and unpacking of cargo transport units (CTUs), including freight containers. This information is intended to assist in planning and executing the packing of cargo so that its shipment will be satisfactory to the shipper, carrier and consignee. It will also help in the prevention of pest contamination and damage to CTUs and their cargoes transported by road, rail, and by ship.
