The IMO/ILO/UNECE Code of Practice for Packing Cargo Transport Units (“CTU Code”) was published in 2014 It covers all matters to do with packing or filling cargo into or on any kind of transport unit, including road trailers, railcars and freight containers. The CTU Code contains a wealth of information, including CTU selection, precautions to take before, during and after packing and securing cargo, and considerations to protect cargo, CTUs and personnel during such operations.
GSF, in partnership with the World Shipping Council, TT Club, and ICHCA are cooperating on a joint industry initiative promoting the Code to stress its importance to supply chain safety. As a first step, this questionnaire attempts to gain a better understanding of awareness of the CTU Code, and establish what the greatest cargo risks might be. We would be grateful if you would consider the questions posed and answer them as fully as possible. All responses will be dealt with in the strictest confidence and the resulting data aggregated with all other responses to ensure anonymity.
