Incorrect Ocean Container Packing Leading Cause of Cargo Damage
Read this article in global Trade Magazine: Incorrect Container Packing Leads to 65 Percent of Damaged Cargo http://www.globaltrademag.com/global-logistics/incorrect-container-packing-leads-65-percent-damaged-cargo

An analysis of TT Club’s insurance claims records suggests that 65 percent of damages to cargo result from poorly packed, blocked, or secured cargo in freight containers.

The 65-percent figure points to only a fraction of the extent of a significant safety problem surrounding poor packing, according to TT Club’s Risk Management Director, Peregrine Storrs-Fox. “TT Club, along with our fellow industry representatives are concerned that preventable incidents, both on land and at sea, arise from badly packed CTUs,” she said. “The safety of workers, particularly those unloading units at destination, is also at considerable risk. Safe industry packing and securing guidance must be disseminated and followed.”
