Dear freight industry colleagues, A very warm welcome to the second series of CTU Packing Roadshows, staged by ICHCA International in partnership with the British International Freight Association (BIFA). The ICHCA-BIFA Roadshows take place in Yorkshire during October 2014: • Grimsby (21 October) • Hull (22 October) • Bradford South (28 October) • Middlesbrough (30 October) After three years of development the new IMO/ILO/UNECE Code of Practice for Packing of Cargo Transport Units (CTUs) is due for release this year. Extensively revised and upgraded from the original 1997 CTU Packing Guidelines, the new Code has implications for everyone involved in CTU logistics, whether moving general cargo, refrigerated or dangerous goods, by road, rail or water, in containers, swap bodies, road trailers, tankers or rail cars. As part of ICHCA’s “Pack It In!” campaign for safe packing of CTUs, the CTU Packing Roadshow offers practical education and advice on the contents of the new Code, its impact, and how the new guidelines should be adopted by various supply chain members. As the leading NGO association representing the interests of the global cargo handling industry, ICHCA International has been deeply involved in the consultation process with IMO, ILO and UNECE. Our thanks go to BIFA for partnering with us to organise this series of Roadshows in the UK and promote better understanding of safe CTU packing, VIew the latest updates and book online at
