Technological innovations have improved the prospects for enhancing on board fire safety by detecting fires before they get out of control. Identifying areas that are warming up relative to the adjoining areas helps identify the cause and take quick corrective action. So what are the steps we can take to prevent fires in container ships?
Ensuring the safety of goods being transported or stored in container boxes assumes great significance to everybody involved in the supply chain process. In addition to the inbuilt safety mechanisms that keep containers safe from intruders, there are other methods to secure your precious cargo.
The current shipping container scarcity has left the global trade and commerce industry reeling under one crisis after another.

The safety of cargo in containers is often taken for granted, but it is a fact that losses from theft of cargo because of imperfectly secured container doors are a mounting problem. Paying a little more attention and using the right type of container door locks can mitigate the chances of burglaries to a great extent.
