Hamburg, 2 July 2018. Navios joins the Container Ship Safety Forum (CSSF) as the latest full member. With now 17 members, the CSSF represents more than 36% of the TEU capacity of the global container ship fleet.
Furthermore, the CSSF offers the option of a free membership to companies managing a container ship fleet with a combined capacity of less than 10 000 TEU as of 1 July 2018. With this option the CSSF would like to attract also companies in this segment to work towards its vision of a container shipping industry with high safety standards ensuring no harm is caused to people, ships, cargo and the environment.
Although the free membership does not include voting rights at members’ meetings, the companies choosing this option will still enjoy all other membership benefits. Amongst other activities, the CSSF provides a wide network of professional peers to exchange information and best practices and the members participate in and have access to an annual performance report.
