188.8.131.52 SPECIAL STOWAGE INSTRUCTIONS
Although the stow is generally planned ashore, the Master and his/her officers should ensure that special stowage instructions from the shipper to avoid exposing the cargo to high temperatures are met. Containers with high value contents – if known – should be stowed under deck.
If containers are to be loaded on vessels not purpose built for their carriage, the vessel’s individual Cargo Securing Manual must be referred to.
