Episode 4: Colossal Cargo

Cargo ships lose approximately 2,500 containers every year. Many fall overboard or are crushed during storms and high-ocean swells. Large waves can cause a ship to pitch or roll dangerously damaging cargo and injuring crew. We follow the team, whose job it is, to make sure that every one of the Triple E’s 18,000 containers is up to the job – as task that involves , subjecting containers to a series of punishing tests, including dropping one from a telescopic crane.  And we follow a team of highly trained firefighters, as they practice for every sailor’s worst nightmare, a serious container fire.
