More efforts needed on container weights

[ September 28, 2012   //   ]

The TT Club called for more renewed efforts to reach an acceptable global regulation on container weight verification, following a “frustrating” International Maritime Organisation session in late September.  The insurer urged all those involved in container operations to prepare in good time for changes to regulations.

TT Club said there was a “groundswell of opinion” in favour of a mandatory verification process. It said that weight misdeclaration had been identified in a number of high-profile cases, such as MSC Napoli and the Seatruck ferry Riverdance, yet the debate was still continuing.
