Two new organisations join Cargo Integrity Group

The original five partners of the Cargo Integrity Group have welcomed the new members of the group, the Bureau International des Containers (BIC) and the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA).

The Cargo Integrity Group believes that these new additions will help in its efforts to improve safety in the global supply chain.

The Container Owners Association, the Global Shippers Forum, the International Cargo Handling Co-ordination Association, the TT Club and the World Shipping Council, together with BIC and FIATA from now on, bring together international freight transport and cargo handling organisations with different roles in the supply chain and a shared dedication to improving safety, security and environmental performance throughout the logistics supply chain.

Both the two new members have already worked closely with the Cargo Integrity Group and will directly contribute to faster and more effective progress in reducing incidents, accidents, and biosecurity issues in the international supply chain.

Dedicated to improving the safety, security and environmental performance throughout the logistics supply chain, the Cargo Integrity Group will continue its efforts in its chosen focus areas:

  • Collaborating with other industry and governmental stakeholders in promoting awareness and better understanding of safe cargo packing and handling practices such as the CTU Code
  • Working to improve regulatory requirements such as the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code
  • Working for strengthened cargo screening processes and more effective container inspection regimes
