    The Guidelines have been produced to minimise the dangers to containerships, their crews, and all personnel involved with containers throughout the transport chain, and were developed by an expert industry working group, meeting in London and Washington DC during 2008. The Guidelines have now been presented to governments at IMO where they have been well received. Encouragingly, the  guidelines have also attracted a positive response from shippers’ organisations who, under the umbrella of the Global Shippers Forum (GSF), have lent their support to this brochure. The primary responsibility for the safe transport of containers by sea rests with containership operators.

    However, there are many other parties in the transport chain concerned with the safe movement of containers. There are those employed by shipping lines involved with the booking and assignment of cargoes, and the subsequent arrangements for stowage planning; and there are the freight forwarders, ports and terminal operators and - particularly important - the shippers, from whom the cargo originates. All of these players have important responsibilities which are addressed by the Industry Guidelines.

    Particular emphasis is given by the Guidelines to the responsibilities of those involved with the correct packing, labelling and weighing of cargoes when they are stuffed into containers, and the accurate declaration of goods by cargo interests.

    Safe Transport of Containers by Sea Comprehensive information on the safe stuffing and transport of containers can be found in the joint International Chamber of Shipping and World Shipping Council publication ‘Safe Transport of Containers by Sea: Guidelines on Best Practices'.

     

    All of these activities have a direct bearing on the safety of ships and the reduction of the risks to the lives of ships’ crews and other personnel in the transport chain. The following advice is an extract from the main guidance on shippers’ responsibilities addressed in the ‘Safe Transport of Containers by Sea’ guidelines. 

    The MS SeaReader platform is accessible to individuals as well as shipping companies. It provides a digital technical library on board or in the office. The books are in PDF format. They are always available and constantly kept up to date.

    The publications are displayed in a digital format that is quick and efficient to navigate whether the user is online or offline. It is a flexible system and can be moved from device to device seamlessly. The catalogue offers an easy overview of the publications with an optimized search filter.

     

    The software is Windows-only, and Macs are not supported.

    Once purchased, we cannot accept returns.


    The digital library is easy to access and update and you don’t need to be online to access the publications. SeaReader makes compliance inspections easy by having the latest mandatory publications on board at all times.
    The shipping costs and administration associated with maintaining a paper library are removed - there are no physical books to ship and the entire library is updated with the click of a button.

    SeaReader contains Flag State Regulations from Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Canada, Cayman Islands, Cyprus, Denmark, Hong Kong, Isle of Man, Liberia, Malta, Marshall Islands, Netherlands, Norway, Panama, Singapore, United Kingdom, USA and Red Ensign Group. Included e-books from IMO, Brown, Son & Ferguson, Imray, and a growing list of other maritime publishers.

    SeaReader is a digital technical catalogue for use on board vessels. It stores all of the publications that are needed on board and displays them in a digital format that is fast and easy to use.

    SeaReader keeps the administrative work on board to a minimum as the latest set of publications are always available.
    The easy to use system makes it quick and easy to see what books are on board the vessel. One annual licence provides access to paid for ebooks on two separate PCs.

    SeaReader is simple, very easy and intuitive to use. With one-click updating and filtered search results, it is quick and easy to find the information you need. There is no need for additional work to make sure your vessel is flag state compliant, as SeaReader does this for you.
