ICHCA, PEMA team up for sustainability and safety in cargo handling

ICHCA, PEMA partner to develop sustainability and safety in cargo handling

The International Cargo Handling Coordination Association (ICHCA) and the Port Equipment Manufacturers Association (PEMA) have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to achieve their mutual goals.

Though not a financial commitment, the agreed-upon future collaboration will allow each organisation to benefit from similar actions in their different initiatives, fostering a broader understanding where areas of mutual interest have been discovered.

Achim Dries, President of PEMA, said: “At PEMA we are thrilled to announce the signing of this MoU with ICHCA. It is a momentous step toward fostering greater collaboration and innovation within the maritime industry.

“This MoU signifies not only a union of two influential organisations but also a shared vision to shape the future of safer port equipment and operations. We look forward to strengthening this partnership and achieving remarkable milestones together.”

Richard Steele, CEO of ICHCA, stated: “At ICHCA we remain committed to our efforts to improve safety, security and sustainability in the global logistics supply chain, especially at the ship/port interface. 

“I believe our agreement with PEMA will significantly enhance our ability to deliver on that commitment. The mutual cooperation between our two organisations will be aimed at the universal understanding and application of measures for the safe handling.”

Earlier in July, G2 Ocean, a bulk shipping company, joined ICHCA’s wide network to improve safety for both shore-side and sea-going workers.
