MSA warns against rule violations in busy season

5 June 2013
Yangtze Maritime Safety Authorities have warned against any complacency among shippers.

They say that some shipping lines are cutting corners by not deploying the required number of crew. A major collision that took place in the Anhui section of the river on 16 May involved four vessels that had either overloaded or were short of the minimum required crew numbers. A series of random checks last week found two vessels to be short of crew members and one carrying dangerous cargo without a permit. They were fined Rmb6,000 and Rmb8,000 respectively.

According to MSA reports, 14 violations were discovered in total during May.
