This Shipping Fail may pale in comparison to the Cougar Ace debacle, but we bet that is of little consolation to whoever bought these cars at an auction in Japan and had them shipped to Russia. Unless the goal was ultimately to just cash in a big insurance check, the best move would have been to ship these cars in shipping containers, despite the slightly higher cost. But, even if they were shipped on deck, you would have hoped that they would have taken some standard precautions, such as making sure they are all securely strapped down, and all have their parking brakes engaged. If not, how else could they have expected this to end?
