In preparation for potential adverse weather conditions in the coming months, we would like to remind you of what measures to take to ensure your cargo is appropriately secured for shipment at sea.
Please take note that the minimum required number of lashing points per freight unit is two but our standard policy is four.
Irish Ferries is committed to the proper securing of movable cargo units on board all of our ferries in accordance with the Maritime Administrations’ rules, regulations and applicable codes.
Further information is available at Irish Ferries Freight - Securing Cargo.
The maximum unit weight cannot exceed 45 tonnes– for any unit exceeding this weight an Abnormal Load form will be required. This is available at Irish Ferries Freight - Abnormal Loads.
