Rickmers-Line Standard

Ensuring your cargo arrives safely

The nature of the cargo carried by our vessels requires special care and outstanding performance in handling, stowage and securing. The experience we have gained over decades, modern technology and the latest scientific knowledge have been compiled into the latest revision of the "Rickmers-Line Standard for Stowage and Securing of Project Cargo".  (Current version: Edition 2014) 

All requirements and technical solutions described herein are primarily directed towards the Masters of Rickmers-Line vessels, our supercargoes, stevedores and agencies. The customers' duty of care and responsibility are addressed as well.

For any questions concerning cargo securing and lashing or the "Rickmers-Line Standard" please contact your local Rickmers-Line office or agency.
