This section provides dimensions of the maximum package sizes which pass through
the sft cargo door opening. The maximum length is restricted by the geometry of
the sidewall liner opposite the door.
Package sizes are approximate. Titling, twisting, bending and/or rotating packages
through door openings will allow additional lengths in many cases, but should be
determined for each situation. A trial loading is recommended for packages with
dimensions close to maximum dimensions indicated in the tables.
The height dimensions fo not include allowances for items increasing package height
such as fork lift tyne thickness, pallet depths, skid tub heights, eitc. Any such
devices must be accounted for in the total height.
Bulk cargo is usually carried in the bulk compartment. Bulk cargo can also be carried
in the Forward and Aft Containerized Cargo Compartment or as a mix with containerized
loads. Tiedowns may be required. Refer to CHP-SEC 1-68-00x for tiedown information.
