Whenever it gets big and heavy in containerised transport, flat racks take the strain. With payloads of up to 50 mt, flat racks allow the shipment of liner cargo that will not fit into any container, and this is particularly favourable for today’s just-in-time manufacturers.
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.
In this webinar, Dr Maximilian Guth, Associate Partner at Dabelstein & Passehl, outlined various aspects of the recent developments in the view of the existing international conventions and the existing liability regimes from a marine insurance perspective taking into account existing insurance products for autonomous underwater vehicles.
