Solid bulk cargoes – defined as granular materials loaded directly into a ship’s hold – can suddenly turn from a solid state into a liquid state in a process known as liquefaction. IMO guidelines exist to instruct shippers on how to avoid the potential dangers, so why does liquefaction remain such a menace?
