It would be interesting to loadplan, for sure.
If the guys doing the load plan are anything like the ones I worked with that would be very, very scarey!

They gave me the load plan duties after I had been there two days. I was scared shitless about making a mistake. I always thought of one of those old beat up containers popping loose from the tie down locks and sliding all the way back.
