Plywood Packages How to pack the packages of plywood which should be transported by containers ?  You must know this packing method: 50 PCS of 18x1220x2440mm plywood per package and 18 packages per 40HQ container . However, if the thickness of plywood is 17mm, how to pack the plywood ? It’s easy !

Above all , we should know that: the standard packing method of plywood (size: 1220x2440mm) is 18 packages per 40′ High Cube container and the height (total thickness) of all the plywood in each package is about 900mm .

Plywood Packages As the above said, the total thickness of all 17mm plywood in a package should be about 900mm . Then the No. of pieces of 17mm plywood per package should be 900mm / 17mm ≈ 53 PCS per package . If the plywood thickness is 10mm, the No. of PCS of 10mm plywood per package will be 900mm / 10mm = 90 PCS per package .

Now, it’s a piece of cake to calculate the No. of PCS of plywood per standard package .

Usually, all the 18 packages will be put onto 18 pallets and then loaded into 40’HQ containers .

The above mentioned is the Standard Packing Methods Of Plywood size 1220x2440mm (also applicable to 1250x2500mm) . If the sizes of plywood are not 1220x2440mm or 1250x2500mm, the packing methods will be more complicated .

I got valuable information about plywood from your blog, keep on writing…

Nice tip my friend!

Now I wonder what would be the lay out of those packages on the container since the width of the container is only 2,33m

I am negotiating some plywood but I still feel uncomfortable about the amount, untill I am able to understand the accommodation of it on the container.

I wonder how you can put 18 pallets in a 40HQ container if it is only 2350 mm large. You cannot put 2 pallets side by side and you cannot rotate the pallet 90°. Where’s the trick?

Some pallets must be rotated 90°.

Mason Pan on August 12th, 2011 at 7:25 pm #

8 pallets should be rotated 90° and 2 pallets should stand up in container .

If a supplier charges per cbm for plywood. Should he charge 40CBM for a 40’HC or the actual CBM the plywood calculates to?

he should charge the actual CBM the plywood calculates to.
