China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL) began with the formation of the China Shipping Group (CSG) in Shanghai in 1997.   CSG is a state owned enterprise employing 40,000 staff having interests in bulk shipping, tankers and regional container services in Asia.  Amongst other activities, the Group is involved in container terminals, air freight, freight forwarding, telecommunications and various investment opportunities.

At the beginning of 1999 when the export of manufactured goods from China began to soar, China Shipping Container Lines started its first non-regional service to Australia.  This was soon followed by the first sailing to Europe and a first call at Felixstowe.  Later the same year CSCL started a Trans Pacific service.  In its relatively short lifetime, China Shipping's fleet has grown to 139 container ships with a capacity of 593,000 teu. China Shipping is now operating in over 60 major trades lanes including the important east-west trades.  The company ranks as one of the ten largest container lines.

In the UK and Ireland, China Shipping (UK) Agency (based in Felixstowe) has represented CSCL exclusively since the first sailing in 1999.  In that time China Shipping has become an established and award-winning name having won a reputation in the UK shipping industry for its efficient and helpful service. 

China Shipping (UK) Agency has been using IMDG Code e-learning since 2009 for IMDG Code training on both Amendment 34-08 and Amendment 35-10 provisions. They have recently purchased Amdt 36-12 refresher courses for Amdt 35-10 students, and general awareness and function specific courses for new students.
Richard Green, QA Manager commented, "We have been using IMDG Code e-learning to train our staff for several years now, and have been very pleased with the quality of the training courses, flexibility of the approach to training and ease of transition in setting up training from one IMDG Code amendment to the next."

IMDG Code e-learning is a cost-effective online training tool for all shore side staff involved in the handling and transport of dangerous goods by sea. It was developed with the support of the International Maritime Organization, and gives high quality training that complies with both the general awareness and function specific training requirements in the IMDG Code.
