The paper describes the advanced design process for weather routed heavy cargo transports which is now possible using the Safetrans PC software tool. The software tool, devised as a risk based, probabilistic response method for the calculation of the design loads for ocean transports and tows has been subjected to a thorough calibration and validation.
