It was the intention to produce a document useful to the insurance industry and indeed to any who are involved in or affected by containerisation. In no sense of the word can the group claim that this is a comprehensive report, yet by including information on construction, handling, documentation, legal liability and other aspects of interest it is hoped that it may prove to be the stimulus for further study. The report can only be accurate at the time of writing and must require updating from time to time, especially where pending legislation is concerned. Because the group have looked at the subject in broad terms the reader will find certain repetition which the group considered acceptable if sense is to be made of any particular part without reference to others. The members of the study group represent all the main sections of the industry-underwriting, broking, loss assessing-with an average length in service in marine insurance of about 15 years.
