Container overweight handling methods and the impact of the new policy (middle): 2018-08-01 11:03:00 3. The weight limit of the port area mainly depends on the mechanical equipment load of the terminal and yard. After a container ship arrives at the dock, it generally needs a crane at the dock to carry out loading and unloading operations, and then it is towed by a 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 it will not be accepted if it exceeds this limit. 4. Supporting feeder ships or highway weight restrictions have been done in the United States. People who have done the inland points of the United States deeply understand that the weight restrictions on road transportation in the United States are very strict, because many containers need to be towed inland by trucks after being unloaded at the terminal Therefore, the highway weight limit is also the reason for the shipping company to limit the weight of the container. Of course, it is not limited to the terminal only. The weight requirements for cargo to the United States are very strict. The weight limit is mainly affected by the weight limit of the highway to the inland points of the United States. Generally, the small container is 17.3 tons and the large high container is 19.5 tons. However, different ports also have different weight limit requirements. Fifth, the weight limit of the route is different. The capacity of the ship is arranged according to the order of the cargo loading and unloading port and the type and heat of the export of the goods. In addition to the load problem of the equipment operation at the destination port, the weight limit of the container size of different routes is naturally different. Overweight treatment methods are mainly divided into port area overweight, shipping company overweight, and destination port overweight. 1. If the shipping company is overweight, discuss with the shipowner to make up for the overweight fee. Others will go as normal. 2. The port area has self-prescribed overweight. If you find that it is overweight when entering the port, you need to negotiate with the port area and pay the overweight fee plus manual handling fee or take out the box to reload. 3. The port of destination is overweight. Generally, if the port of destination is overweight within a certain range, a fine can be settled; if the overweight is serious, the crane cannot load it along the way and can only be unloaded at a nearby port or return on the same route.
