Putting commerciality over safety and total ownership ideals is a major challenge for the ports and terminals industry, according to Stephan Stiehler, vice chairman of the International Cargo Handling Coordination Association’s (ICHCA International) Technical Panel.
A new memorandum of understanding (MoU) aims to ensure a faster route for testing and implementation of sustainable innovations by key equipment, technology, cargo handling and financial services providers into the world's major ports.
ICHCA International has published a digest of entries to the 2nd TT Club Innovation in Safety Award detailing 22 improvements to supply chain practices.
COMMENT: Take a straw poll in any grouping of 100 container supply chain professionals with the question “who is aware of the CTU Code?” and the response is invariably disappointing, writes Richard Brough.
ICHCA International, the global cargo handling NGO, has called for improvements in global cargo handling when it comes to safety, smart technology, sustainability, security and skills.
ICHCA has released an information paper on the impending VGM regulations to clarify the "mistaken belief" that the SOLAS amendment itself has been deferred for three months until October 1, 2016.
Just days until the enforcement date of the IMO’s SOLAS amendment on container weighing, the industry is being told to put contingency plans in place as upwards of 70% of containers are expected at ports without a verified gross mass come July 1, according to ICHCA International.
With under one month to go until the SOLAS verified gross mass (VGM) regulation enters in force, less than 15% of International Maritime Organization (IMO) Member States have issued guidelines on how they plan to enforce the amendment, according to ICHCA International.
Compliance systems specialist, Exis Technologies, has announced the introduction of two new e-learning courses for safe handling and packing.
