ICHCA publishes safety improvements digest
ICHCA International has published a digest of entries to the 2nd TT Club Innovation in Safety Award detailing 22 improvements to supply chain practices.
The winning entry for the 2017 Award was Hapag Lloyd's Cargo Patrol with its attempt to reduce fraudulent cargo declarations that obscure the true identity of dangerous goods transported around the globe.
Peregrine Storrs-Fox, risk management director of transport and logistics insurer TT Club, said the company "remain dedicated to encouraging safety awareness and applaud ICHCA's initiative in publishing this wealth of innovative ideas to improve global supply chain safety".
Also included in the digest is an explanation of Safety Ammo, awarded the 2017 'Highly Commended' prize. An RFID-based safety solution, developed with DP World Brisbane, it minimises the dangers faced by workers who physically handle twistlocks on the underside of containers on the waterfront.
Presented at ICHCA's 65th anniversary conference last year, the 2nd TT Club Innovation in Safety Award aimed to highlight the importance of safety at a time of increased operational demands on the cargo handling infrastructure and operations worldwide.
The Award, open to any individual or organisation involved in cargo logistics around the world, required entrants to show that a product, idea, solution, process, scheme or other innovation had resulted in a demonstrable improvement to safety.
