As we all know, container is a component tool that can carry packed or non packed goods for transportation, and is convenient for loading, unloading and handling with mechanical equipment. Its advantage is the standardization of its products and a set of transportation system.
When it comes to containers, small partners will mention container yards. So what is container yard? What are the types of container yard? Follow Xiaobian to understand it!
In fact, the container yard refers to the place in or around the container terminal where the containers are handed over and kept. Some places are also called the yard. Its main function is to gather the containers of all export customers at a certain place (whether customs clearance or not), and then get on the ship after the closing time (it must have been cleared at this time).
According to the information consulted by Xiaobian, the current container yard is divided into three types: front yard, rear yard and empty container yard. The details are as follows:
Container front yard refers to the yard where containers are temporarily stacked in front of the container terminal in order to speed up ship loading and unloading operations. Its function is that when the container ship arrives at the port, it can stack the export containers in a planned and orderly manner according to the stowage requirements, and temporarily stack the import containers in front of the wharf when unloading, so as to speed up the ship loading and unloading operation.
The container rear yard is the place where the heavy or empty containers are handed over, kept and stored. The container rear yard is also an integral part of the container loading and unloading area, which can be said to be the place where the whole container is handed over in the way of "field arrival" for container transportation.
Empty container yard refers to the place where empty containers are collected, kept, stacked or handed over. It is specially set up when the container loading and unloading area or transfer station yard is insufficient. Generally, it does not handle heavy containers or cargo handover.
