Blames Accountants and then thanks one.
typical accountant...

making assumptions before the facts are clear!

I blame accountants for the problems with the world...  they run/ruin EVERYTHING!
thanks....

so, risk of loss in your experience is 0.075%. Although, you said you'd lost 2, out of 4000... which is 0.05%......

In my experieonce, it's a big fat ZERO.

Risk of damage in my case a big fat zero, although I was lucky with one....

Reason being....

My dad once appointed an accountant for a car sales outlet that previously had none.

In a very short time, the accountant worked out that the sales guys could do it just as well without dad managing, so got the boss to let dad go.

Well...... guess what happened...... they ALL ended up losing their jobs when the dealership failed shortly after......

Dad now sell Ferraris.

We have imported 1000's of containers of tiles over the years and only lost one off a ship and one off a truck.

How do you lose a shipping container of a truck?

in summary


about 10000 per year, or 0.005% of total carriage,


which is ten times less than even PA experienced (not that he has any idea of course, he was 50% out in his own calcs... bless him for trying though :tilt: )

We only had one lost at sea so we had the prescribed amount. The other was when a truck fell over, bloody truck driver thought he was driving a Ferrari. Have to watch out for these people who get their Ferrari and Trucks mixed up.

Risk of damage with RORO..... Well, I've never done one myself, but that's because I've seen and fixed the results of others....

I'd guess at a 50% chance of some kind of damage, and a 90% chance of some kind of mis handling/theft/driver abuse.

I love my truck... but it has tested me lately.... I blame the French for that! It's a Mack Euro, which is Renault.

What do you mean "prescribed amount"?.. 1 lost in 4000 is 0.025%... so which is it! You're still wrong!   :tilt:

Now, put something in the funny thread, to make up for it.
