WORKING WITH CONTAINERS — AN FTA BEST PRACTICE GUIDE
|D O W N L O A D|
An excellent and very useful guide providing the information to be appreciated by all people engaged in cargo handling. The booklet is mainly intended to raise awareness of the people including FTA members and other participants such as haulers and shippers whose day to day work is connected with maritime container operations. Since the early days of so-called containerization subject concept of transportation freight has eventually turned into a truly global industry.
All links forming a worldwide supply chain are suing containers at one time or another. The use of the containers has resulted in the reduction of the freight handling costs. From the other side, the variety of different specialist containers has also grown. However, a regular general-purpose container is still considered best suiting a widest range of the items to transport.
The authors of the present booklet strongly hope that it will enable the participants of the shipping industry to discuss commonly used practices when using containers and this will significantly contribute into the overall safety of the maritime container shipping environment. This compact document not only covers general practices of cargo handling but also addresses the associated risks.
