PACKING MATERIALS A whole range of packing materials is available to the packing expert. There are the traditional materials wood, metal, glass, paper, cardboard, and textiles (jute, canvas, netting, etc.), and for some time now foam materials belonging to the polyurethane, polyethylene, and polystyrol groups. This multitude of materials permits the most differing approaches to packing, and often results in significant savings of time and money. The following list offers a general overview of the newer and traditional materials for air cargo packing in use today : MATERIALS FOR OUTER PACKING (FOR PALLETS, CRATES, ETC.) Wood : light woods, plywood. Molded compounds : fiberboard, chipboard, fiber (particularly suitable for use in combination with wood). Cartons : solid cardboard in various grades up to bitumen-coated board, corrugated cardboard (single to quadruple corrugations in variuos structures), cardboard honeycomb, full-walled board capable of being folded across corrugation. Containers for liquids : light metals, plastics, glass, corrugated cardboard with interior plastic coating. Paper bags : paper with high tensile strength, interior coated with PVC, polyester or polyethylene. Fruit crates : corrugated cardboard with plastic trays, light wood, polystyrol. Barrels and stackable containers : plastic, sheet metal, tin, steel, fiber, cardboard. Plastic wrapping : PVC or polyethylene sheeting (or wrapping unpacked machine). BRACING AND PADDING MATERIALS (in some cases also insulation). Plastics : polyether and polyester, polyurethane cut pieces and foamed shapes. Air : air cushions and cellular air plastics film. Combinations : sandwiches of various combinations of polystyrene, polyethylene, polyester, corrugated board. Bottle jackets : specially stamped, expandable paper structures, straw jackets, polystyrene and other foam plastic jackets. The secret of good packing lies in the use of materials specifically suited to outer container construction and bracing and padding structures for purposes of pressure equalization. Efficient use of materials presupposes exact knowledge of their properties and the stresses they are called on to withstand.

Dear Mr. Cousin,

Thank you very much for your enquiry of 25th June, concerning a shipment of scientific equipment from Marseilles to Durban. Please find enclosed details of our standard rates, shipping schedules and documents necessary for transportation. Depending on the exact weight and volume of your consignment, we can arrange for either a full container load (FCL) or less than a container load (LCL), and as an indication, the maximum pay load for a 20 x 8 x 8 container is approximately 18,000 kgs. We would be pleased to arrange a door-to-door service, in which case the goods will be picked up at the sellers premises and delivered where you require them in South Africa.

In either case you should fill in the enclosed Shipping instructions and return them to us by 1st September, which is the closing date for the next sailing from Marseilles. The vessel, the SS Aurora, sails on 5th September and will arrive in Durban on 10th October.

Jack Turner here. Good; So you received my e-mail ? Yes, just now. So you didnt manage to get the container onto the Anna Britt ? No, in fact there was a hold-up at customs.

The question is, what do you want us to do now ? Well, the container must reach Tilbury at the latest on Thursday, and there isnt another feeder vessel until Friday from Le Havre.

GREEK STRIKE SPREADS The strike which has paralysed the port of Piraeus for the past two weeks has now spread to other Greek ports. Dockers in other ports around the Mediterranean are complaining that since the Voravian earthquake, their workload has doubled due to the sharp increase in ships using already congested facilities and insufficient care is being taken in handling goods. Containers, sacks, drums, and so on have been piling up on quaysides and in any available warehouse. This had lead to a significant rise in problems of pilferage, vandalism and spoilage.
