New guide to container packing

[ December 18, 2014   //   ]

The Global Shippers’ Forum (GSF) has launched a new guide for shippers: “Working with containers-a keynote guide for managers.” It aims to provide a simple guide to the recently agreed voluntary code of Practice for the Packing of Cargo Transport Units (CTU), setting out the main sections of the new CTU Code most relevant to shippers, including their responsibilities and actions in an easy to follow format.
Don Armour, GSF’s transport safety and security advisor said: “ This GSF guide will help encourage shippers, wherever they are located, to recognise issues affecting safety and adopt a common approach to addressing and solving issues regarding containers.”
It complements a suite of maritime safety campaign materials launched by the GSF in 2013, and is part of GSF’s continuing efforts to raise standards in the global supply chain and shippers awareness of their responsibilities.
