How tragic

What a desperate situation, I don't know what to say.

Absolutely tragic. It puts our trivial worries into perspective.

Re: How tragic

. . .and spare a thought for the dedicated people who will have to deal with this awful harrowing tragedy, and contact families, arrange funerals or repatriate bodies, etc.

Re: How tragic

When they ship racehorses about they have cameras in the trailers & a screen in the cab. For the cost of a few quid, lives could be saved & drivers can see what they’re actually carrying.
Those poor sods froze to death, freezer trucks should be equipped with alarms, activated from inside to alert those on the outside.
There’s plenty of safety measure options available, none of which are rocket science.

Re: How tragic

Most containers are rented on an ad hoc basis , they can sit on ships chugging around the world , they get smashed to bits and dumped overboard when beyond use . They are kept as simple and maintenance free as possible .

Who would check them , where , when , who would certify said , in how many languages ?

Aint never gonna happen , sadly , complexity is cost . End of .

Re: How tragic

Very tragic indeed. My thoughts also go to the haulage drivers who have had their lives messed up or lost their businesses due to people jumping on board without the drivers knowledge. I'm sure the majority of drivers wouldn't want anything to do with people trafficking but are suckered into it unknowingly. Such a bad situation all round for everyone.
