Item 7-Understructure (Exterior). Have the MILVAN raised and safely supported so you can inspect the bottom of
the container (figure 2-20). Carefully check for any cracked or broken weld, or any weld that has been improperly
made. Examine each frame member on the underside of the MILVAN for fractures, cracks, kinks, distortions, and
separations. Remember, throughout the inspection, check for bad welds, and for broken, damaged, or improperly
used bolts, rivets, and fasteners. Check the openings in the four bottom corner fittings for obstruction and
Remember to inspect for rust or corrosion that can weaken the floor assembly or its supporting structure.
Carefully check the underside of the floor for any possible damage that was not visible from inside the container.
Sum up the information from the check list on the Container Inspection Report.
