When this comes in, we place this on a mafi per WWL’s instruction. WWL works their vessels and plans their storage on the vessel. All cargo is loaded under deck and stowed according to the vessel planner’s instruction. The box will be secured to the mafi at the time it is unloaded from the truck. Once the mafi is towed on the vessel the mafi is lashed/secured to the vessel. Vessel’s equipment such as a mafi has a standard lashing to the vessel which WWL does all the time. For stowage information, operations for
WWL will have to confirm that just prior to loading.
