CARGO CAN BE LOADED ON DECK OR UNDER DECK
On Deck Stowage:
Cargo that are too large to be loaded into the hold and are not damaged by water can be directly loaded on deck. On rare occasions, cargo can be stowed directly atop the hatch covers.
Under Deck Stowage:
Usually empty flat rack containers are stacked in the second or third tier from the top side-by-side in the hold and cargo is loaded on top of these.
