What does High-and-Tight mean?

High-and-Tight is a term used in the shipping industry to refer to cargo that is loaded onto a vessel in a way that maximizes the use of space and ensures that the cargo is secured and protected during transport. High-and-Tight loading typically involves stacking cargo as high as possible while also keeping it tightly packed and secured to prevent shifting during transport. 


High-and-Tight loading is commonly used in the transportation of containerized cargo, where cargo is loaded into standard shipping containers and stacked together to maximize the use of space. This loading method can help to reduce transportation costs by minimizing the number of containers required to transport a given amount of cargo.
