Discrepancies in the acceleration forces can occur with all means of transport. On the basis of these acceleration values, forces can be calculated from the product of the mass (packaged goods/package) and the acceleration. These forces then form the initial values for dimensioning box components, securing the packaged goods in the boxes and carrying out any loadsecuring measures: F = m · g where: F = acceleration force [N] m = mass [kg] g = acceleration [m/s²], see Table 1
