Solomon Ports is proud to be part of the global publication on Best Practice Guidelines for Stowage and Securing of Steel Cargo to spearhead improvements for steel cargo handling in ports, launched by Jurong Port Pte Ltd in Singapore on Wednesday November 27th.

This set of industry best practice guidelines has received global support from port authorities, shipping associations, maritime insurance groups and regional ports who have participated in the drive for enhanced safety best practices.

Solomon Ports was represented at the launching by Chief Executive Officer Eranda Kotelawala and Corporate Manager James Gerea.

Participants includes, Jurong Port (Singapore), Port Klang(Malaysia) , West ports ( Malaysia), Johor port( Malaysia), North port(Malaysia), Solomon Ports.

Solomon Ports is the only port participated outside of the Asia region for this guideline development and launch.

In the course of this initiative which started in early 2017, Jurong Port partnered international marine consultant, Brookes Bell, and the Witherby Publishing Group in this endeavour.

The publication provides comprehensive guidelines on loading, stowage and securing, and advice on bundling, lashing, dunnage for various types of steel cargo such as rebars, coils, plates, pipes, structural steel etc, offering guidance that can help overcome years of overlooked shortcomings in stowage of steel products onboard cargo vessels that has caused safety and productivity concerns during cargo discharge operations.
