Dangerous goods present a challenge due to the variety of hazards they pose when they are shipped around the world. In this webinar Dr Mirjana Küzma, from Andrew Moore & Associates, presented the regulatory framework as well as practical aspects related to the shipment of dangerous goods.
From the origins of the shipping container in the 1950s through to nearly ten billion tons of marine cargo carried in 2014, global trade benefits consumers and businesses – but it has also generated tremendous accumulations of cargo, many located in catastrophe-exposed areas.
Heavy units such as steel coils or granite blocks require extra care when being loaded in containers. Detailed calculations of transport strains and effects on the container are necessary to ensure the safe transportation of heavy cargo.
