On the opening door of each container, there is information about the maximum weight, such as MAX GROSS: 30480KGS. This means that your suitcases and luggage cannot exceed this weight. Tare weight-20GP: 2200KGS, 40: 3.720-4200KGS, some HQ will have MAX GROSS: 32000KGS.

This is the maximum strength that the container box can withstand. If the load exceeds this limit, the box may be deformed, the bottom plate will fall off, and the top beam will be bent and other damage. At present, most professional container terminals in China are equipped with automatic scales, so as long as the container loading exceeds the weight limit of the container, the terminal will refuse to accept the container. Therefore, it is recommended that you check the weight limit on the container body before packing to avoid unnecessary reloading.

If the goods are really overweight and cannot be divided, then you can choose an overweight box. There will be an increase in the weight selection fee. The general wharf / yard will stack the common dry boxes of the shipping company together. If you want to choose a special weighting cabinet (such as the 20 weighting cabinet mentioned above), the wharf and yard must be one by one Finding, the resulting cabinet selection fee is generally the same price as the specified cabinet fee. (International Import Logistics Declaration)

Container transportation is a collaborative operation process involving multiple departments, so in addition to the weight limit of the container itself, there are some other factors that need to be considered.

Shipping company weight limit

Under normal circumstances, each shipping company's weight policy is different, the approximate standard is not to damage the container as the standard.

Considering the balance between cabin and weight. Each container ship has certain space and weight restrictions, but on a specific route, the space and weight are not always just balanced out. Contradictions often occur in the North China region where heavy cargo is concentrated. The weight of the ship has arrived, and the cabins are still much less. In order to make up for the loss of such cabins, shipping companies often adopt a price increase strategy, that is, how many tons of cargo exceeds the additional freight charge . Some shipping companies do not use their own ships, but buy other shipping companies' cabins for transportation. The weight limit will be more strict, because the shipping space between shipping companies is calculated according to the standard of 1TEU = 14TONS or 16TONS , Those who exceed the weight will not be given on board.

During the explosion period, the shipping company will lower the weight limit for each box type according to the different routes.

When booking, you must ask the freight forwarder about the shipping company's weight limit at the latest. If there is no confirmation and the goods are heavy goods, there is a risk. Some shipping companies will not have any room for communication after being overweight, and let the shipper directly drag the goods, leave the port, take the goods and then weigh again. These costs are not easy to control.

Port weight limit

Mainly depends on the mechanical equipment load of the wharf and yard.

After the container ship docks at the dock, it usually needs a crane at the dock for loading and unloading operations, and then it is dragged by truck to the container yard and then lifted down by a forklift. If the weight of the container exceeds the mechanical load, it will cause difficulties for the operation of the terminal and the yard. Therefore, for some small ports with relatively backward equipment, the shipping company will generally inform the port of the weight limit in advance, and if it exceeds this limit, it will not be accepted.

Supporting feeder boat or highway weight limit

Anyone who has made an inland point in the United States knows well that the weight limit for road transportation in the United States is very strict, because many containers need to be taken to the inland by trucks after unloading at the terminal, so the road weight limit has also become a shipping company The reason for restricting the weight of the container is, of course, only for the terminal.

The weight of the goods to the US line is very strict. The weight limit is mainly affected by the weight limit of the highway to the inland point of the United States. Generally, the small cabinet is 17.3 tons, and the large high cabinet is 19.5 tons. However, according to different ports, there are different weight limits. (International Import Logistics Declaration)

Line weight limit

For different routes, the shipping capacity of the shipping company is arranged according to the order of loading and unloading at the cargo port and the type and heat of the cargo export. In addition to the load of equipment operations at the destination port, the weight limit of the cabinets of different routes is naturally different.

What if I am overweight?

This is mainly divided into port area overweight, shipping company overweight, destination port overweight

1. The shipping company is overweight

Discuss with the shipowner and pay the overweight fee, otherwise follow the normal way;

2. The port area has its own overweight regulations

If you are found to be overweight when entering the port, you need to negotiate with the port area, pay the overweight fee plus manual handling fee or repack the box;

3. The destination port is overweight

After the general destination port is overweight, a fine can be settled within a certain range; if the overweight is serious, the cranes along the way can not load and can only be unloaded or returned to the original port.
