Cold knowledge in "box rules"

2023-06-25 Clicks:117

  The new "box rule" has been implemented for nearly half a year, but some of the provisions in it we only know the implementation, but do not know the specific reasons, today I will pick up the reasons for the formulation of some of the provisions in the "box rule", please correct the inappropriate.

  Article 6 Series 1 container refers to a container that complies with the Classification, Size and Rated Quality of Series 1 Containers (GB/T 1413); Series 2 containers refer to containers that comply with the Classification, Size and Rated Quality of Series 2 Containers (GB/T 35201).

  The difference between the two: the general width of series 1 containers is 2438mm, and the total weight of the container cargo is 30.48 tons; Series 2 containers generally have a width of 2550mm and a total cargo weight of 35 tons. Series 2 containers are made of ultra-wide angles and must not be mixed with Series 1 containers.

  What are CSC and UIC?

  Article 7 Containers shall be marked and marked according to regulations, with the emblem of the container inspection unit, the safety qualification license of the International Convention on the Safety of Containers (CSC), the mark of the International Union of Railways (UIC), and the mark of the regular inspection date or continuous inspection plan.

  CSC is the abbreviation of the International Convention for Safe Containers, which is an international convention signed to ensure the safety of container transportation. The Convention was adopted by the United Nations Intergovernmental Maritime Consultative Organization at the Conference on International Container Transportation held in Geneva on 1 December 1972. The main content is to uniformly stipulate the technical requirements of the container structure to ensure the safety of the container in the normal loading, unloading, stacking and transportation process. The Convention applies to all types of containers used in international transport, but does not include containers specially designed for air transport.

  UIC is the French abbreviation of the International Union of Railways, headquartered in Paris, France. It is a non-governmental railway association in which railway agencies in some European countries and railway institutions and related organizations from other continents participate, and later expanded the organization of some non-European countries, referred to as the Iron Alliance. Its purpose is to promote the development of international railway transportation, promote international cooperation, improve railway technical equipment and operation methods, carry out scientific research on relevant issues, and realize the unification of technical standards for railway buildings and equipment.

  Article 42 Container loading and unloading and handling machinery shall be used for loading, unloading and handling containers, and container spreaders without guide plates on one side (on both sides) or adjustable (flipped) guide plates shall be used for series 2 containers.

  Reason: Series 2 containers are wider, if you use container spreaders with guide plates on both sides, it may get stuck and the spreader cannot go down.

  Article 49 The following provisions shall be implemented for container transportation passing through the Gera section of the Qinghai-Tibet Line (excluding Golmud Station): heavy containers are prohibited from being transported by open truck, and empty containers are prohibited from being transported by container special flat cars without F-TR locks. Containers sent to Taizhou South Railway Station shall not be shipped by open truck.


  In the first sentence, open trucks are prone to displacement, resulting in heavier loads. The wind is strong, and I am afraid to blow the empty container down.

  In the second sentence, the line is a mixed running line, and the running speed of the truck must reach more than 90km/h, otherwise it will affect the punctuality of the train, and some open cars cannot meet the requirements.
