To use a web lashing, or textile lashing, is one of the most common ways of securing cargo. One method that is often used is a top-over lashing (friction lashing) - Place heavy cargo on the bottom of the container and lighter cargo on top. - Block and brace the cargo to prevent movement in any direction. - Fill in the voids between the cargo and the container sides. - Ensure all supplies containing liquid are packaged in appropriate containers. - Use block stowage to protect bagged cargo from shifting Methods of blocking include using metal or wooden wedges to keep a container in place, adding an extra layer of wood or cushions that act as an extra wall or cover inside a container. Blocking is a practical approach to securing cargo; one that is simple yet very effective upon implementation Shoring, which includes blocking and bracing, is the process of securing cargo to prevent side-to-side movement by supporting it from the side. Shoring may also be used to prevent downward movement.. Blocking & bracing is a method of securing a load. The more the load weighs the more important blocking and bracing becomes, because the more there is that can go wrong. Blocking means preventing the load from moving laterally (side-to-side, front-and-back) and bracing means preventing the load from moving vertically (up-and-down)
LOAD RESTRAINT METHODS 1. Floor Blocking A. Securely nail to trailer/container floor all blocking to prevent lengthwise movement. Reinforce with backup cleats, at least 18 in length. A minimum of 2 x 4 lumber should be used to secure loads of non hazardous materials and 2 x 6 for hazardous materials Refrigerated cargoes include meat carcases, carton (packed) meat, fruit, cheese, butter, fish and offal. Ships are specifically designed for their carriage, with separate spaces in holds and 'tween decks, each fitted with suitable insulation and individual control of ventilatio Block, brace or tie down cargo to prevent movement in any direction (remember, do not apply bracing to panels or sheathing) Cover cargo adjacent to doors with plastic or waterproof sheets to protect cargo from possible leakage Avoid Mixing Incompatible Carg
To enable cargoes to be carried in blocks, the cross deck and double bottom structure needs to be specially designed and reinforced. Block loading results in higher stresses in the localised structure in way of the cross deck and double bottom structures and higher shear stress in the transvers Chapter 7.4 of the International Maritime Dangerous Good (IMDG) Code specifies the mandatory dos and don'ts under the IMO/ILO/UNECE Guidelines for the Packing of Cargo Transport Units. Common terms such as blocking and bracing are used in the general packing guidelines, but there are many other important details that must be considered . 1.1.3 The sum of void spaces in any horizontal direction should not exceed 15 cm. However, between dense rigid cargo items, such as steel, concrete or stone, the void spaces should be further minimized, as far as possible.. states that cargo liable to slide during rolling, such as steel rails, should be stowed fore and aft; describes methods of blocking, wire lashing, shoring and tomming cargo; describes methods of securing cargo faces resulting from part discharge before making a sea passage; describes methods of securing heavy load solid and liquid bulk cargoes, are required to carry a Cargo Securing Manual that has been approved by the administration. Thus, the provision of a Cargo Securing Manual is a mandatory requirement. Such a manual gives, for the ship for which it was prepared, guidance for the safe carriage of cargo items for which that ship was designed and cargoes
Blocking stabilizes cargo loads to prevent shifting and trailer overturns or provides a physical barrier on equipment to prevent accidental activation during maintenance. When chocking, use specially designed truck wheel chocks of the appropriate size and material to securely hold the vehicle. Don't use lumber, cinder blocks, rocks, or other. Cargo stowed in containers must be secured on all sides to prevent shifting, in particular towards the door. Spaces between packages and/or container walls must be filled. Secure the cargo by using the lashing points provided on the top and bottom side rails and on the corner posts. Containers should be packed and cargo secured in accordance. The rule-of-thumb method is a simplified method for evaluation of required lashing strength for safe securing of a cargo unit. The method by no means optimizes an arrangement but may be used as a. Commonly used Cargo Securing Arrangements for Dry Cargo 1. Lashing is a general term that is used to on behalf of all the securing arrangements onboard : It includes ropes, wires, webbings, bandings, strapping or chains, bottle screws and other patent tensioning devices mostly used on container ship
Blocking or cribbing is used to level, support, or stack items for transport or construction. Blocking and bracing is a load securement method using lumber and metal bars to reduce or inhibit front to rear shifting of freight/cargo. SPECS. Blocking Lumber & Dunnage. Thicknesses from 3/4″ to 16″ Widths from 2″ to 16″ Lengths up to 30 fee (2) Block and brace cargo loaded on theater transportation assets. (3) Contact the servicing movement control team (MCT) and the military mode operating battalion (MMOB) to help solve blocking and bracing problems. c. The consignee will remove blocking and bracing materials and return trailers to their organization configuration. d
Strategic cargo theft, or theft that uses deceptive means, continues to evolve. This type of cargo theft can involve unconventional methods, including the use of fraud and deceptive information intended to trick shippers, brokers and carriers to give the load to the thieves instead of the legitimate carrier . There are two blocking options: Place one piece of blocking so that it extends at least half the distance from the center to each end of the pipe. Blocking Option #1 Place two pieces of blocking at the outside quarter points
The Standard Club - Protection and Indemnity (P&I) clu CARGO SECUREMENT SYSTEM - means the method by which cargo is contained or secured and includes vehicle structures, securing devices and all components of the system. WORKING LOAD LIMIT (WLL) - The Working Load Limit (rated capacity) is the maximum load, which at any time o METHODS TO REDUCE FRICTION • Liquids • Rollers/Pipes/Wheels • Lift one side of object to reduce load on contact surface • Reduce the size of a rough contact surface ENERGY AND WORK CONCEPTS The effective use of rescue tools is often determined by a complete understanding of mechanical advantages systems and their application in a given. The core concept of this method is to assemble ship building blocks by use of bolting, gluing and welding techniques at sea without dock facilities. Due to its independence of dock facilities,..
Cargo Protection. Shippers need to understand the importance of blocking and bracing of all cargo. Shippers who fail to block and brace their shipments properly risk significant problems, including: Damage to the cargo; Damage to the ship or aircraft or neighboring cargo; Accidents that can cause injury or death Few other important factors to consider when packing your cargo is to. plan the stowage of the cargo in the container; ensure that all container weight limitations of the container are met as per the markings on the container as there are consequences of weight mis-declaration; distribute the weight equally inside the container taking care not to exceed permissible weight concentrations per. Lashing methods for cargo with lashing eyes: The task of the lashings is to prevent moving of the cargo against side and length direction and against tipping to side. The most lashings must be set against moving to side. For this purpose the cross lashings (red) are the most efficient method. Additionally direct lashing Chain slings, however, are used for heavy slender cargoes, such as timber or steel rails. Can or barrel hooks are suitable for hoisting barrels or drums. Cargo nets are suitable for mail bags and similar cargoes that are not liable to be crushed when hoisted Wrapping the load is a legitimate method of minimizing excessive sling length. Other methods, such as, twisting and knotting radically reduce sling Work Load Limits. When the load is wrapped the sling Work Load Limit is not increased, but load control is.

can provide a safe method of securing freight. Once the material has been identified and staged for loading, perform a final inspection to see that it is marked, labeled and in proper condition for transportation (49 CFR Parts 173,174,175,176,177). The above photos are of employees performing a final inspection Standard Dry Cargo/ISO Containerization. World Trade Distribution specializes in blocking and bracing of containerized freight, utilizing unique processes that save time and increase cube usage. During the containerization process, voids are filled and blocking and bracing applied to maintain proper lengthwise and crosswise weight distribution cargoes, for example salt and sulphur. Limewashing is used as a protective coating before loading such cargoes. Limewashing is a physical barrier application - so the thicker it is, the better the protection, but the more difficult it is to remove. Effective barriers against corrosive cargoes are

Methods of ventilation used in general cargo ships Ventilation requirement Not every commodity requires or even benefits from ventilation during transport. Cargo loaded in bulk carriers may only benefit from surface ventilation, i.e. a change of air between the underside of the deck or hatch above and the surface of the commodity The goal is to have all cargo — including heavy equipment — remain secured on or within the transporting vehicle. To do that, the DOT has developed a list of load securement rules. Some rules apply to all cargo, but there are also separate sections dedicated to additional requirements for specific types of cargo — like heavy equipment.

Each securement system should be able to support 80% of the cargo's weight while braking and moving straight ahead, and 50% of its weight while accelerating, shifting gears uphill, or braking in reverse
Quite often, a $20 to $30 blocking and bracing solution can prevent a $150 driver unload fee, detention charges and - most importantly - damage to your product. We suggest following the Union Pacific and Association of American Railroads (AAR) blocking and bracing general rules of thumb when shipping intermodal Blocking, Bracing and Skidding of Industrial Plan Equipment for Shipment and Storage MIL-HDBK-701 - Military Handbook Blocking, Bracing and Skidding of Industrial Plan Equipment for Shipment and Storage Subject/Scope: This handbook is applicable to all shipments of IPE controlled by the Department of Defense except as specifically exempted or. • The production of a specific method statement. Note: Where businesses within Laing O'Rourke (i.e. Expanded, Select, Malling) are contractors working for Principal Contractors other than Laing O'Rourke, other procedures may apply. These will identify which lifting operations will require specific method statements Straight laced reeving is a basic method of placing the rope through a set of blocks. The end of the rope is fed through the outside sheave of the upper block to the outside sheave of the lower (traveling) block. This continues to the last sheave
Cabling of the block occurs most frequently as the load in the wire rope is released and the falls are in a lowered position. Cabling may be considered as the twisting of the block beyond one-half revolution (180o twisting) of the traveling block *FM 55-17 i FIELD MANUAL Headquarters NO 55-17 Department of the Army Washington, DC, 16 February 1999 CARGO SPECIALISTS' HANDBOOK TABLE OF CONTENT block stowage, it is the outer stacks that are exposed to wind loading. However, when carried on a partially loaded deck, isolated stacks and inboard containers can also be exposed to wind, in which case, additional lashings need to be applied if containers of non-standard length, that is, 45, 48 or 53 feet are carried, the shi The application of a barrier coat Some vessels are equipped with fixed cargo hold washing machines, however, these vessels are in a minority and most vessels carrying solid bulk cargoes will need to manually wash the cargo holds. Where fixed washing machines are used, manual cleaning of shadow sectors within the holds may still be required The cargo so stowed should be further secured through overall lashings or nets. Unless so stowed or secured by some equally satisfactory methods bulky packages should be lashed individually, preferably with wire rope
Combat loading is a special type of unit loading of ships so that embarked forces will have immediately needed weapons, ammunition and supplies stowed in such a way that unloading of equipment will be concurrent with the force personnel and available for immediate combat during an amphibious landing. It gives primary consideration to the ease and sequence with which troops, equipment, and. Each year, countless tons of cargo are stored and transported across the globe in a variety of shipping container types. In 2013, the international liner shipping industry transported around 120 million containers, filled with approximately $4 trillion worth of cargo. With so many goods making their way across the globe's oceans each year, shipping companies are tasked with safely. To get most crocheted garments, such as sweaters, vests, and jackets, to match a pattern's finished measurements, you must block them. Blocking is a process used to shape crocheted work. It can be as simple as spraying your design with water or completely immersing it in a tub to get it good and wet A new block a ssembly method for shipb uilding at sea 4.1 Analysis of a bulk carrier The FE model needs to include three cargo hol ds and four transverse bulkheads, and need t
During a long distance transport the moisture contained in the goods and in the packaging material including any timber used for blocking and protection may condense on the inner boundaries of the container or on the cargo or even within the cargo Sulphur cargoes - a reminder on good practice on board bulk carriers Major problems on board a bulk carrier have again highlighted problems encountered when carrying bulk sulphur cargoes. Relatively minor lapses or omissions in a vessel's preparation to carry cargo can lead to major insurance claims
