DUNNAGE is a term used to describe components or material that is used to secure - secure - lock the cargo inside the container or van so that it is NOT damaged during its journey.
In V Modal we have a specialized area that analyzes the load before moving it we recommend the best scheme - load diagram either in container or box car.
Properly loaded merchandise, that is: properly distributed, blocked and secured, ensures that the merchandise arrives as it left its origin and helps avoid costs caused by delays, rework, returns, etc.
WHAT IS THERE TO DO?
Take into account basic information:
> Container and / or boxcar size
> Type of cargo: drums, pallets, bags, etc.
> Dimensions (length, width, height)
> Number of pallets or packages
> Load weight
> Provide photos
> Know if the load goes to the floor or can be stowed
> How the load is unified, whether on pallets, bags, drums, etc.
To stabilize and secure the load, it is necessary to take advantage of different types of blocking and securing material such as spacers, space fillers, strapping, air bags; specifically designed for locking and securing in intermodal transport.
A GOOD SECURITY EQUALS A SUCCESSFUL SHIPMENT.
