Madagascar: Reminder of container loading rules
AGS Madagascar wishes to remind its colleagues and partners of the rules for loading containers, especially relating to the loading of motor vehicles.
In most cases, cars and motorcycles are loaded into the bottom of containers, behind the household goods, which means that dockers must first remove all personal effects in order to access the vehicles for SGS to conduct its inspection. Not only does this additional handling represent a waste of valuable time, but the HHGs and the vehicle are likely to be reinserted incorrectly. In order to avoid this situation in future, we’d like to urge you to enforce the rules when loading motor vehicles into containers.
Please ensure that cars and motorcycles are systematically loaded on the door side of the container.
