Lloyd's Register researches clever container storage

Jan. 16, 2013 at 11:37 by Lars Brandstäter in Container Shipping

A major research project by Lloyd’s Register has discovered a means to improve the way containers are handled and carried.
The results of this new research project by LR means that in future, ultra-large container ships (ULCS) using the new method could potentially load up to 19% more cargo weight.  

Containership owners and managers are forever seeking sleeker and more streamlined ways to load, stack and carry their boxes as vessel sizes continue to expand and economies of scale to match them accordingly. So what will be the impact of this breakthrough technology on global ports, trade routes, suppliers and differing ship sizes? And how will it affect the stowage, lashings and motions of ships coping with storms and extreme weather in mid-ocean?
These and many other key questions about this unusual breakthrough are answered in the new January issue of Lloyd’s Register’s Horizons marine magazine .
