    ABS teams with industry leaders to improve container vessel safety

    ABS and leaders representing the Cargo Incident Notification System (CINS) are teaming up to develop actionable recommendations to help mitigate risks posed from the stowage of dangerous goods on containerships, ABS said in its release.

    ABS has been working with CINS members over the past six months to develop best stowage strategy guidelines. Following a three-month trial, the best practice guidelines will be published on the CINS website www.cinsnet.com. The collaboration assembles key industry stakeholders to examine the challenges and risks containership owners and operators face when stowing dangerous goods.

    The objective of this project is the compilation of a comprehensive set of best practices to improve stowage planning and hazard mitigation for dangerous goods carriage, leading to a focused application of existing risk assessment processes.

    For more than 50 years, ABS has been a trusted technical advisor for the containership sector. From the very first containership in operation to today’s most advanced ships, ABS is an industry leader. As a classification society, ABS has a strong track record for aiding the containership sector in identifying and leveraging new concepts to improve operations, protect the environment and enhance safety.
