The CTU Code states that all goods, including hazardous goods, should be properly secured in shipping containers and voids should be filled.
The doors of the container may be used as a wall, provided that the cargo inside the container is properly secured or stowed. This means that the cargo may NOT lean against the door and needs to be kept away from the doors at all times.
With a container lashing system, such as Cordstrap composite lashing, you can quickly prevent this from happening. In the case study below we explain two lashing methods for containers, the harness lashing, and the cross lashing, that are a low-cost solution to accomplish this.
