Publication Spotlight: Safe Handling and Operation of Platform Flats
This Briefing Pamphlet provides detailed information concerning the loading and securing of cargoes on platform flats and flatrack containers, which are generally used to carry oversize or project cargoes that cannot be packed into standard box type ISO freight containers. It also details the various types of units that are available for this purpose and their key handling features. This pamphlet updates and replaces the former BP19, which covered the safe lifting of interlocked platform flats and flatracks.
BP41 should by no means be considered as a replacement for the IMO/ILO/UNECE Code of Practice for Packing Cargo Transport Units, which should be referred to as appropriate.
