Early-stage analyses pave the way for best incident management and prevention of incidents

Sailing safely is always the top priority of the shipping companies. Incidents at sea such as container damages and losses pose several risks to the environment, crews, ships and shipping companies' daily operations. Although the causes of incidents at sea are numerous and as well as complex, shedding light on the causal factors of container losses and damages is fundamental to ensure safety. 

The unexpected heavy weather conditions which result in such as currents and wind, of course, lead to container damages and losses. However, what are the operational causes that can be eliminated so that incidents are managed effectively with minimum administrative efforts and prevented from happening? The most common and avoidable operational causes are derived from:
  • Inadequate lashing calculations
  • Inadequate stowage planning
  • Outdated loading computer solutions
  • Poor collaboration with classification societies 
As mentioned above, those listed operational causes are in fact avoidable errors. The question is which practices are the best for effective incident management and prevention. In order to answer this question, the Navis team put together a meticulous case-study. We profoundly believe that effective incident management consists of  three pillars as follows:
