One of the universal concerns that unite the global shipping industry is the danger posed by hazardous cargo.

While a focus area for liquid and dry bulk and tanker operators, those involved in containerised shipping are engaged in almost forensic analysis of all aspects of transporting hazardous cargo to identify and implement the best options for minimising, if not eliminating, the risks.

The list of human and capital casualties for container shipping from hazardous cargo mishaps has become woefully long in recent years, yet incidents keep occurring.

The MSC Flaminia incident in July 2012, claimed three lives and has led to regulatory changes as well as a seminal judgment on liability between stakeholders. The Maersk Honam incident in March 2018, in which five seafarers were killed, has become the catalyst for the kind of industry resolve that began to take shape throughout 2018. The Yantian Express fire in January 2019 – followed by others through the year – has raised the volume of concern further.

Lloyd’s List, and its research and consultancy counterparts at Lloyd’s List Intelligence, will host an interactive forum with industry leaders, coinciding with Informa’s Global Freight Awards, to drive collaborative effort to tackle the faults in the global supply chain of dangerous goods. TT Club, one of the central agitators for change with its #Fit4Freight cargo integrity campaign, is sponsoring the forum.



Key Topics for Discussion


During the forum we will examine the options being put forward to stamp out undeclared and misdeclared shipments, poor packing and securing in the unit load industry, and other cargo-related malpractices that can have deadly consequences, and discuss the necessary actions to protect lives, the environment, ships and cargo.

We will also evaluate the progress towards greater collaboration across the industry, encompassing shippers, forwarders, ports, terminals, insurers, and other stakeholders, as well as container lines.

In this forum we shall look at:

- What each segment of the supply chain should do to protect against misdeclared cargo

- Understanding of the latest technologies for carriers and shippers to mitigate risk

- What the industry is doing on an international level to coordinate the elimination of misdeclared cargo
