Safe shipment of goods in Cargo Transport Units

In this marine risk engineering guide, we highlight how shippers and cargo owners can do their part to minimise losses through more efficient and safe packing, container stuffing and correctly declaring cargo type and weight.

Recently there has been much negative marine industry press regarding the issues of container ship fires and the loss of multiple containers overboard from container ships.


In 2020, it is reported by the World Shipping Council that 1,382 containers were lost at sea. Fast forward to 2021, and in the first few months around 2,500 containers were already lost,


Liberty’s risk engineers have written a practical guide to help our clients understand and address the factors related to safely transport goods in containers. We call it our Safe Shipment of Goods in Cargo Transport Units guide.
