A recent bulletin from The Standard on losses experienced by some of their members :

The Standard : Deck Cargo – May 2016, the world’s largest database on transportation of cargoes in the marine industry is linked below. This website is aimed at providing a platform acceptable for everyone to provide and share the best knowledge available on cargo transportation, thereby hoping to contribute to awareness and prevention of loss. 

This website provides information on over 750 commodities with emphasis on those characteristics which may be relevant during overseas transportation. The guidelines are general in nature and the amount of information largely depends on availability and level of transport-related research done.

Specific information provided by manufacturers, shippers, authorities and shipping lines may differ and the user of this website may therefore wish to make further enquiries as to the most suitable guidance. In no circumstance, does the information on this website replace provisions governing the carriage of goods as stipulated in IMO publications, Production Safety Data sheets, advice given by insurance companies, regulations by any national or international authority, etc.
