Let's hope it is not from the UK taking britishexpats containers! Is also quite an interesting photo to see how high they stack the containers, no wonder why they sometimes lose some at sea!

Interesting, I never relised so many containers were stacked on top of each other. I'm afraid we are gonna risk it and send our stuff like that, scary.

That's exactly what I though when I saw this - I'm glad that's not my stuff.

They don't strap down the containers either so in high seas it's not unknown for containers to fall off in to the sea.

I was quite worried when I say that on the news last night but my stuff set off towards the end of Jan so hopefully its not made it that far yet.
No bloody idea tho because my shippers haven't told me when it set off or what ship its on or when it will arrive...just took my stuff and sent me a bill!!! :scared:
