"Ships store container not lashed to flatrack JSSU0800013, when lifting container in front of the one mentioned, container caught ship store container that was placed onto flat rack, dragging it towards portainer, falling onto cross beam of portainer and ship handrail . Ship store container was empty which allowed it to move quiet easily. No comrades or ship personel were injured, but could have been alot worse. This flatrack was loaded in napier NZ , I think once this flatrack has been loaded by wharfies , ship crew may have used ship crane to put 10 ft ship store container on flatrack 2 high 2nd container in. T ship crew claim to of unlashed their container upon arrival in Melbourne."
