Determining the load’s centre of gravity:
care should be taken that the longitudinal centre of gravity of the load conforms to the load diagram recommended for the CTU. For example, in the case of a container it must match its geometric centre. Likewise, the transverse centre of gravity of the load must coincide as far as possible with the geometrical centre of the CTU in the same direction. It should be as low as possible and, in any case, avoid exceeding half the height of the CTU.
