Numerous researches conducted in the field of container safety, particularly their packing, resulted in the conclusion that there are so many good guidelines to the packing of the containers. Those books have been in use for quite a long time; however, the incidents keep happening and include poor securing and/or overweight containers.

Most of the guidance books used today are mainly based on the provisions of the Guidelines for Packing of CTUs, i.e. Container Transport Units. Significant portion of that document still needs to be revised to include updates related to the very latest technological advances in the established container packing practices. The present publication was prepared to fill in the existing gap in information.

Due consideration has been given by the authors to producing the good and easy to implement guidance for the supply chain so that it can be used in any transport mode and not limited to the marine transportation of the container units. In fact, the contents of this book includes a perfectly worked summary of the available volumes with the guidance on container packing and as such will be great practical use to all people involved in container transportation.
