Safe packing seminars

[ October 1, 2014   //   ]

ICHCA Internationa and BIFA are hosting a series of practical seminars on the new IMO/ILO/UNECE Code of Practice for the Packing of Cargo Transport Units (CTUs) on 21-30 October. The half-day events will be in Hull, Grimsby, West Yorkshire and Tees will focus on the new Code’s contents, its potential impact, and how it may be enforced globally.
Developed jointly by the International Maritime Organization, International Labour Organization and United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, the new Code of Practice will be far more comprehensive than the original 1997 packing guidelines from these three organisations and apply to all types of cargo moving in containers, trailers, swap bodies and rail wagons, by land or sea.
As highlighted recently by insurance company TT Club and the Cargo Incident Notification Service (CINS), poor CTU loading is responsible for an alarmingly high percentage of incidents.
