Description: The spirit and purpose of this Standard is to inform shippers of cargo units, stevedores and supercargoes etc. about cargo handling and securing practices on board of the vessels sailing for Rickmers-Linie and to provide a specific update to masters and officers.
Realizing that safety requirements do not necessarily contradict commercial aspects, the main objective of Rickmers-Linie is to increase the technical and commercial performance of marine transport by avoiding damage and loss of cargo, finally resulting in an improved safety at sea and protection of the marine environment. The Standard, in particular, provides detailed information about lifting, bedding and securing/lashing of cargo as well as the equipment used and its maintenance.
The Standard further describes the cargo information to be supplied by shippers in accordance with Chapter VI, Regulation 2 of the SOLAS-Convention (see Ch 1.3) and the necessary configuration of lifting provisions, bedding areas and securing points. The desired securing point configuration and lashing scheme of the cargo corresponds with the tensile strength (MSL as per IMO) of the fixed and loose securing gear on board of the vessels and their deck lay-out.
