Poor loading procedures can cause solid bulk cargoes to shift, liquefy or catch fire. Anyone who wants to avoid this danger and protect ship and crew should check out Carrying solid bulk cargoes safely: Guidance for crews on the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes Code. It’s a great little booklet produced by the triumvirate of UK P&I Club, Lloyd’s Register and Intercargo for ‘on-the-spot’ use by ship officers and agents who arrange cargoes for loading. The pocket guide and checklist are clearly and concisely written. Grab a free copy in PDF format, courtesy of the UK Club, here. ~Barista Uno
