The secret on the container door
A booty toy maker is about to load a big container of booty sex toy, with gross weight of 27 tons, the 40’HQ container was booked by a trader.
When the container arrived at erotic toys factory, the driver told the factory that the container is a general product container with weight limit 26 tons. Cargo is overweighted, the harbor wouldn’t collect it.
The adult toy factory contacted the trader, who was confused too. Later they got to know the driver and the other love toy maker mis-picked each other’s container.
He has to go back to the harbor to exchange the container.
The first container:
The second container:
The dildo maker, although already in pussy and ass masturbator production for 6 years, was not aware the weight limit is already shown on the door of container until this experience!
20’GP: Shown on the container door as 22G1
Weight limit of cargo = 28,300.00 KGS (30,480.00 KGS – container weight 2,180.00 KGS)
40’GP, shown as 42G1
GVC: Weight limit of cargo = 26,690.00 KGS (30,480.00 KGS – container weight 3,790.00 KGS)
40’HQ: shown as 45G1
ZIM: Weight limit of cargo = 28,610.00 KGS (32,500.00 KGS – container weight 3,890.00 KGS)
EverGreen: Weight limit of cargo = 28,600.00 KGS (32,500.00 KGS – container weight 3,900.00 KGS)
45’HQ = L5G1
Volume of 45’HQ is 86CBM, 10CBM more space than 40’HQ, it means you might stuff 50 cases of more pocket stroker, but it doesn’t mean the weight limit is higher than 40’HQ.
E.g. this 45’HQ from FSCU:
Weight limit of cargo = 27,750.00 KGS (32,500.00 KGS – container weight 4,750.00 KGS)
To recap: Container type, internal dimension (L x W x H cm), CBM, cargo weight limit
20’GP = 22G1, 589x235x239cm, 33.1CBM, 28,300.00KGS
40’GP = 42G1, 1203x235x239cm, 67.6CBM, 26,690.00KGS
40’HQ = 45G1, 1203x235x269cm, 76.4CBM, 28,610.00KGS
45’HQ = L5G1, 1355x235x269cm, 86CBM, 27,750.00KGS
It’s better to double check with your forwarder about the weight limit and internal dimension before loading your adult sex toys container, different shipping company weight limit varies.
