ABSTRACT
The article discusses the dangers associated with cargo liquefaction, which was seen in the capsize and sinking of the Bulk Jupiter container ship on January 2, 2015 while it was carrying bauxite that will be unloaded in China. Topics discussed include existing standards covering shipment of bauxite like the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code and the International Association of Dry Cargo Shipowners' call for further studies on shipping bauxite to ensure safety.
