ICS Container Guidance
The International and Chamber of Shipping (ICS) and the World Shipping Council (WSC) have published new industry guidance for shippers and container stuffers concerning the safe transport of containers by sea. Significantly, the guidance is supported by the Global Shippers’ Forum (GSF) whose membership comprises regional shippers' bodies from Asia, Africa, Europe and North America .

The Guidance is extracted from ‘Safe Transport of Containers by Sea – Guidelines on Best Practices’ – which was published by ICS and WSC late last year. The Industry Guidance for Shippers and Container Stuffers is being distributed free of charge throughout the global shipping industry and can be downloaded via the ICS website at: http://www.marisec.org/containers/
