Description: The main aim of merchant ships is to transport various goods by sea to their destinations safely without any loss or damage in route. For this purpose, it is essential to take adequate countermeasures to prevent cargo shifting and overloading in addition to ensuring proper ship operation.
Recently, the amount of freight containers has significantly increased and container carriers have been getting larger for more effective transportation. Furthermore, various new technologies regarding securing arrangements, methods and devices have been developed to enhance the efficiency of loading containers on board. Accordingly, it has become more important to evaluate the adequacy of such container stowage and securing arrangements.
ClassNK conducted extensive research and investigations on the practices and standards regarding container stowage and securing methods, and has published “Guidelines for Container Stowage and Securing Arrangements” in October 2009. In the guidelines, the latest ISO standards relating to containers are reflected and diversified container stowage and securing methods as well as detailed evaluation methods are shown and explained.
In the second edition of the guidelines, the evaluation methods have been amended in order to enable the effect of sea routes, which the container ships operate in, to be taken into consideration. Also, procedures related to affixing class notations for the following two types of ships have been added
