New Loss Prevention Bulletin - The Carriage of Reefer Containers

Although the carriage of chilled and frozen cargo in reefer (refridgerated) containers has been performed for many years, the Club continues to experience claims for alleged cargo damage, principally due to reefer container failure whilst onboard an entered vessel.

This new Loss Prevention Bulletin on The Carriage of Reefer Containers includes guidance for ships’ crews on the loading and carriage of reefer containers to help reduce the possibility of claims arising, along with information on the types of cargoes carried, how reefer containers work, pre-trip inspections, container stuffing and sealing, and temperature recording.
