Effective November 1, 2011:

All DG applications and shipments tendered to "K" Line on, or after November 1st must be compliant with the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Amendment 35).

Background:

DG Loading Plans / Blocking and Bracing:

We would like to take this opportunity to stress that special attention and care must be taken when loading and securing dangerous goods into "K" Line containers. Proper blocking and bracing that can sustain the affects of each mode of transport (road, rail, ocean) is critical for safe and damage free transportation.
