– Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) is aware of the prospects and significance of container transport development, and pays the most serious attention to this area of activities.
Of course, it is extremely important to preserve and develop a competitive domestic container production in spite of the negative impact of macroeconomic and internal factors. Meanwhile, we see that the crisis also brings a positive effect – it facilitates the growth of domestic production, the development of entirely new types of containers and the introduction of new logistic schemes. In this context, the Register sees itself not only as a body for technical supervision, but also as a competent partner of the local organizations and enterprises targeted at development and manufacturing of competitive products.
As in other areas of our business, we see our task in ensuring safe operation of the equipment, safety of human life through the development and establishing of competitive rules for containers as well as in providing competent and timely services on container survey. This is our contribution to the development of transport containerization. We hope that the containers designed, manufactured and operated under the supervision of the Register will be reliable, safe and popular in the market.
