“INTERCARGO on Bulk Carrier Casualties reporting”
INTERCARGO’s Bulk Carrier Casualty Report 2018 provides an analysis of reported bulk carrier losses during the period from 2009 to 2018, when 188 lives were lost and 48 bulk carriers over 10,000 dwt were identified as total losses.
Although there has been no reported loss of a bulk carrier in 2018 and the ten-year trends in annual average numbers of lives and dry cargo ships lost show positive signs of safety improvement, there is no room for complacency.
