Description

Our lives are increasingly dependent on the logistics of products from our home countries in the form of exports and foreign shores in the form of imports. Both are a form of utilizing complex maritime transport technologies supported by standardized rules, regulations, procedures, and techniques. This standardization is a product of continuous developments and observations within the maritime industry by its members and stakeholders. Some of these standards were learnt from accidents we thankfully do not talk about again because of the advancement in maritime operations. Such standards have now taken effect in the transportation of large quantities of timber and container cargoes onboard ships travelling from one end of the world to another. This free online course from Alison, Ship Stowage Handling - Timber and Container Cargo, explores the different regulations, procedures, and techniques relevant to the safe stowage handling of timber along with container cargoes. This covers the precautionary measures taken from the point of pre-loading, through loading, to shipping across the seas, and finally to unloading at the point of destination. The course also takes into account the current trends set by shippers and regulators in choosing ships, containers, including materials for the effective transportation of cargoes.

This course discusses the processes, techniques, along with the rules of stowing timber and container cargoes including their components that are relevant to ship stowage. You will learn about handling stowed timber and container cargoes onboard ships for sea transport. Then, you will study various aspects of timber cargoes relevant to their complex characteristics of stowage and handling onboard ships. You will analyze the fundamentals of timber cargo from proper stowing procedures, lashing of timber deck cargoes, and loading preparations of timber deck cargoes. Container ship types, container stowage details, and fleet trends are also discussed as significant aspects of container cargo in this course. You will also evaluate the implications of owning vs leasing containers. This course also offers valuable analysis/teachings on perspectives of timber and container cargoes including expert views on manufacturing containers, together with container ownership and leasing. You will then identify different cargo materials in ports or onboard vessels through the markings and descriptions on cargo materials depending on their content. Relevant maritime industry resources included in this course cover the regulations of merchant shipping, code of safe practice, and further reading on containerization. Upon successful completion of this course, concepts surrounding the stowage and handling of timber and container cargoes in ships will be adequately understood.

This course aims to equip learners with proper knowledge of stowage handling of container cargoes and timber onboard ships for carriage. This consists of the elements of different types of containers with their traceable markings alongside the appropriate forms of timber acceptable onboard vessels. The appropriate forms of timber acceptable onboard standard cargo ships and vessels discussed in this course range from planks, deals, battens, ends, scantlings, log, wood chips, pole, alongside pit props. This course will take you through a discourse on the characteristics of materials stored in cargo containers, as well as the expected effect of failing to stow or handle them properly before, during, and after loading them on ships. You will also evaluate timber characteristics including how best they should be handled and stowed on ships. The course will be of significant interest to students, logistic entrepreneurs, researchers, lumberjacks, marine engineers, and anyone seeking to learn about the proper stowage and handling of timber and container cargoes onboard ships.
