CONTAINERIZATION: SITUATION AND PERSPECTIVE
The rapid advance of containerization is remarkable. This paper discusses the advantages which are inherent in container transport and points out the changes necessary for inland ports and waterway authorities to adapt to this type of system. Some of the resultant problems are treated for example, definition of the uniform rule of judicial responsibility, securing of cargo in partially filled containers, control of dangerous cargo, revision of freight rates as applies to containers, etcetera.
