To explore what the industry can do to reduce the risks and inefficiencies associated with container lashing and securing, ICHCA is holding a practical one-day seminaron 10 December in Rotterdam’s ECT Delta Terminal, the world’s first automated container terminal.
What’s on the agenda?
Improving Operational Safety & Productivity
Meeting the Big Ship Challenge
Reducing Container Losses
Among other topics, the seminar will provide a chance to discuss forthcoming amendments to IMO’s Code of Safe Practice for Cargo Stowage and Securing, which from 1 January 2015 lays down new requirements for container access and lashing operations, affecting both new and existing vessels.
The seminar will also explore the additional measures that IMO and the industry should take to help reduce the loss of containers overboard as recommended in the Marin Report ‘Lashing@sea’.
