Launched in 2014, the Container Ship Safety Forum (CSSF) is a global
business-to-business network that improves safety performance and
management practices in the container shipping industry.
The shipping industry transports more than one third of the value of global trade, providing more than 4 million jobs, and faces a host of regulations and stakeholder expectations for safe operations.
Are you confident that your business has established the most effective safety management approaches? How does your company performance compare to peers’?
The Vision of Container Ship Safety Forum (CSSF) is a container shipping industry with high safety standards ensuring no harm is caused to people, ships, cargo and the environment.
CSSF members collaborate to advance the continuous improvement of safety culture and performance in the container shipping industry through measurement, reporting and benchmarking, sharing best practices and engaging with key stakeholders to develop durable solutions.
The policy of the CSSF and its Members is to conduct all of its activities in strict compliance with all applicable anti-trust and competition laws, in order to facilitate legitimate pro-competitive and other activities that help advance the objectives of the initiative. It is therefore against the policy of CSSF to sponsor, encourage or tolerate any discussion, communication, information sharing or agreement that would violate applicable anti-trust or competition laws.
This is the first time that leading container shipping companies have come together to drive performance improvements in safety.
Membership is open to companies or incorporated organizations that hold a Document of Compliance (DOC) for the purpose of managing cellular container vessels and for whom ownership and/or operation of container ship vessels for business purposes constitutes a significant business activity.
