Seaworthy Stow of Cargo Carriers
The seaworthy packing and stowing of cargo carriers such as containers or pallets is an essential part of every sea-, air- or land-based shipment to protect the cargo and its environment.
Especially in the sector of hazardous goods class 1 (explosives) and dangerous goods in general, the involved parties put special attention on the proper securing to ensure the safe trip for the cargo and its environment.
Such shipments must also comply with individual guidelines and official, internationally-applicable regulations and, in the case of class 1 hazardous goods (explosive) in particular, goods need to pass through specific monitoring bodies before they can be released for despatch and subsequently shipped or transported.
Next to the stow itself, netcon places attention on the following points:
condition of the cargo carrier/sufficient certification
use of approved dunnage/lashing material
fumigation of cargo carriers (if required)
packing certificates must be issued
sealing of the cargo carriers by customs
sealing of the cargo carriers by the shipper
correct labeling of the cargo carrier
Based on the steady implementation and our comprehensive experience in the sector of stowing and securing, we exactly know what is required in regards to ahead mentioned points and the safe arrival of the goods.
Complete documentation that complies with all the applicable national, European and international regulations is a basic requirement for every cargo of hazardous goods by sea, land or air.
Based on several years in dealing with dangerous goods, netcon int. GmbH provides its customers with all the required documentation to ensure the smooth processing from door to door.

Consulting & Project Planning
The transportation of hazardous goods and related activities, such as storage, transshipment and documentation, are subject to strict laws, requirements and controls on a national and international level, which is why expert planning is essential.
The ever-changing circumstances and a multitude of regulations, laws and restrictions on individual loading, discharge and transit ports/countries, mean that there is not always a permanent transportation solution when it comes to transporting hazardous goods.
Our many years of experience in international land-, sea- and airborne logistics for hazardous goods mean that we always have the latest information at our disposal and are in a position to devise, finalise and implement the optimal solution for your cargo.
