Imperial stages safe barging event

[ April 4, 2019   //   ]

Imperial Logistics International has staged a safety event for its inland barging suppliers in Europe. Some 60 representatives attended an Imperial Shipping Supplier Safety Day 2019  in Cuijk, midway between the company’s bases at Rotterdam and Duisburg as part of its Safety Takes Us Home campaign launched in 2016 to increase safety awareness among the 600 masters, officers and deck crew working on the company’s fleet of pushboats and barges on the rivers and canals of western Europe.

The campaign has already successfully cut personal injury incidents to half the industry average.
