SHIPPERS GUIDE FOR PROPER STOWAGE OF INTERMODAL CONTAINERS WITH EMPHASIS ON OCEAN TRANSPORT

This guide has been prepared in an effort to further the successful carriage of cargo intermodally in answer to the requests of shippers. This method of shipment has untold advantages-but like everything else, it has to be done right. If care is taken, claims can be reduced far below their present level and in many cases eliminated. It has been compiled for complete intermodal transport door to door shipments which include rail, highway and ocean. Where the word container appears in the publication, the same principles of stowage may be applied to any type of highway trailer which is destined to be carried on wheels on a roll-on/roll-off ship.
