For several commodities, container stuffing is a relatively simple process, particularly if the commodities are delivered in loads that can readily be handled by forklifts. In the above photo, bagged coal is being stuffed into 20-foot maritime containers at an on-dock facility within the Manga Container Terminal at the port of Cartagena, Colombia. The bags are designed to fit into a container, including a clearance for loading and unloading.
