CINS Organisation nominated for Containerisation International Award, 4 September 2013

The CINS Organisation, an initiative set up by a number of the world's leading container shipping lines and managed by the Container Owners Association (COA), has been nominated for the Containerisation International 2013 Award for Corporate Social Responsibility. CINS Organisation launched the Cargo Incident Notification System (CINS) in 2011.  The CINS organisation selected Exis Technologies to develop the CINSnet database, report processing and network functionality that drives the CINS initiative.

CINS is a database system designed to capture key data from the container supply chain, and was produced in response to the volume of incidents and problems that regularly disrupt operations and endanger lives, property or the environment. CINS was created by COA Members from five of the top 20 liner operators (CMA CGM, Evergreen Line, Hapag-Lloyd, Maersk Line and MSC - Mediterranean Shipping Company). Specialist container insurance provider the TT Club is an advisory member of the CINS committee. Liner operators use CINS to capture important information relating to cargo and container incidents, providing an early warning of causes for concern that may be trending. This may relate to cargoes that display dangerous characteristics, not yet recognised as such in the IMDG (International Maritime Dangerous Goods) Code, as well as continuing or emerging unsafe practices in the unit load industry.

The Containerisation International Awards recognises companies and individuals that, over the past year, have made an outstanding contribution to the container liner shipping and logistics industry, through being innovative, proactive and pioneering. The Containerisation International 2013 Award winners will be announced at a ceremony on Thursday 24 October 2013 at the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel in London.
