Floor loads:
A container floor is capable of carrying a forklift truck with a maximum axle load of 5,460 kg (12,037 lbs), if the contact area per wheel is at

Concentrated loads:
Concentrated loads are loads that are not evenly distributed over the full length of the floor when stowing heavy cargo in containers; as
