How To Pack A Shipping Container

shipping container dimensionsShipping Container Packing

Imagine you work in a glass factory and a customer has just ordered 240 cups. Each cup needs to be individually boxed before being packed in shipping containers for shipment. The measurements of each box is 3 x 6 inches x 6 inches The box is made of 1/8-inch thick cardboard. No need for spacers. To know how to pack a shipping container efficiently we need to know the dimensions of the containers if the boxes are arranged in 3 stacks of 10 boxes.  Think you can get the answer?

A. 30 1 / 4 X 18 1 / 4 X 6 1 / 4

B. 31 X 7 X 19

C. 29 1 / 4 x 17 1 / 4 5 1 / 4

D. None of the above.

There are three levels of boxes. They are each 3 inches high. So the height of the boxes is 0.125 +3 +3 +3 = 0.125 9.25 There are 10 on each level. This is 2 x 5 width is 0.125 +6 +6 0125 +6 +6 +6 = 30.25 Depth is 0.125 = 0.125 12.25 +6 +6 So I would say the answer is D. Number of containers. There 10×3 goblets per container for 30 boxes of 240 containers goblets/30goblets/container = 8 D.

What is the load bearing weight of a standard 20 foot shipping container?

I am thinking of placing three 20 foot shipping containers 6 feet in the ground and then using fill dirt on top of them. How much load bearing weight can shipping containers safely withstand?

The tare weight is listed on the sides of most cargo containers. I believe that for a typical 20 foot cargo container it’s something in the area of 36,000 pounds.  Of course you’ll want to have load limits like this verified before building a container home.  In many locations you will have to submit a home plan containing this information before being issued a building permit to construct your container home.

All of this type of engineering information as well as CAD design for container homes, container home plans and more are contained in the Containers 4 Homes package.
