Ask us about our container-related certification services:
ABS offers certification services through the ABS Rules for Certification of Cargo Containers and international standards and regulations which allow freight transported in intermodal containers to freely move between multiple modes of transportation including road, rail and ship.
ABS offers certification services for offshore containers through the ABS Guide for Certification of Offshore Containers (ABS OC Guide). Certification of an offshore container is often at the request of the owner or operator, but may also be due to safety regulations mandated by local authorities.
