ICHCA Publishes TT Club Safety Award Entries


ICHCA International has released a digest of entries to the 2nd TT Club Innovation in Safety Award.

The digest provides in-depth details of more than 20 improvements to supply chain practices, including the winning entry, Hapag Lloyd’s Cargo Patrol, an attempt to reduce fraudulent cargo declarations that hide the identity of dangerous goods transported around the globe.

As an organization dedicated to improving the safety, productivity and efficiency of cargo handling and movement worldwide, ICHCA presented the award with TT Club, an insurance and risk management service, to highlight the importance of safety in their sectors.

The award, open to any individual or organization involved in cargo logistics around the world, requires entrants to show that a product, idea, solution, process, scheme or other innovation had resulted in a demonstrable improvement to safety.

Also included in the digest is Safety Ammo, an RFID-based safety system that took 2017 ‘Highly Commended’ prize.

DP World Brisbane assisted in its design as it minimizes the dangers faced by workers who physically handle twistlocks on the underside of containers on the waterfront.

ICHCA stated that the range of entries to the 2nd TT Club Innovation in Safety Award have displayed both “a great diversity of safety issues, as well as tremendous passion, effort and ingenuity”.
