ICHCA Container Lashing & Securing Seminar
10 December 2014, ECT Delta Terminal, Rotterdam


Container Lashing & Securing:

Improving Operational Safety & Productivity

Meeting the Big Ship Challenge

Reducing Container Losses

A practical one-day seminar from ICHCA International

Wednesday 10 December 2014 | ECT Delta Terminal, Rotterdam


Taking place in Rotterdam on 10 December, this practical one-day seminar will explore what the industry can do to reduce the risks and inefficiencies associated with container lashing and securing today both at sea and at the ship-to-shore interface.

Among other topics, the seminar will provide a chance to discuss forthcoming amendments to IMO’s Code of Safe Practice for Cargo Stowage and Securing, which from 1 January 2015 lays down new requirements for container access and lashing operations, affecting both new and existing vessels.

The seminar will also explore the additional measures that IMO and the industry should take to help reduce the loss of containers overboard as recommended in the Marin Report “Lashing at sea”.

Kindly hosted by Europe Container Terminals at its ECT Delta facility in Rotterdam - the first automated container terminal in the world and one of the largest in Europe - together with lashing and securing provider Matrans Marine Services, the seminar will include a chance to visit a vessel for a live study tour.

As the leading NGO association representing the interests of the global cargo handling industry, ICHCA International is pleased to present this seminar, which brings all the interested industry parties together to share the latest information and discuss the next steps for improving safety and productivity in vessel and port operations.

We hope that you will be able to join us this December for a valuable day of education, debate, brainstorming and networking with our expert panel of speakers and fellow industry professionals.

Kind regards,

ICHCA International
