When shipping goods, including computer hardware, books, clothes and tableware, across the globe (crossing the equator) in a container it seems natural that heat, humidity and physical impact would be the main issues. But the details are not so obvious:
- What magnitude are they, for example, how high does the temperature actually go, and how many newtons of (sustained/impact) force can be expected?
- Are any unusual measures (other than simply stacking in cardboard boxes) necessary to protect the goods adequately?
- Are there any other factors which are important? For example, are containers regularly dropped from any height? Are they ever turned on their side? Do the contents have to be packed so that inspectors can get to every single thing easily? Are there pests? Etc.
