Abstract : A universal cargo restraint system for an intermodal shipping container. Each of four restraint cables are connected at the one end thereof to one of the corners of the container front panel and extend rearwardly to a movable rear bulkhead. The other end of each cable includes a threaded rod extending through a selected one of a plurality of holes at the sides of the bulkhead. Nuts adjustable along the length of the rod urge the bulkhead against the cargo within the container. Dunnage and shims positioned about the cargo provide to bracing against to-and-fro and sway motion. A singular cable configuration enables easy installation in and removal from various container and cargo configurations.
