The Voice of Cargo Handling

TT talks

Dear Subscriber...

Welcome to the November 2022 ICHCA Insights Newsletter.

The brilliant TT Club Innovation in Safety Award is our opportunity to celebrate the exciting developments on safety across our whole industry. The Award gives us an immense added benefit of exploring, capturing and sharing what is happening out there in our international back yard. It gives a snapshot of the ‘art of the possible’. The opportunity to make people aware of new ways of successfully approaching old challenges, of eliminating or better controlling risks. Ways that have been tested in the real world. The closing date for Award entries is 11 November and I make a last-minute call out to all members to think about what you, your customers and suppliers are doing for cargo handling health, safety and efficiency. There is still time to enter the Award and to maximise the good ideas that we will be able to share because of it. The more we learn about what you are doing, the bigger the win for cargo handling and coordination, the more people get to go home safe.

I am thrilled to welcome Transport Events Ltd as our latest member. They have a powerful reputation for leading some of the largest trade events in the industry. I look forward to working with them to reach further and faster, helping to continuously raise standards throughout cargo handling. In the second of our spotlights of ICHCA champions we introduce John Beckett, Chair of the Board. We have extraordinary talent, experience and passion in our Board and amongst all of those who contribute their time to our work. These spotlights allow ICHCA members to hear from the leadership team in their own words and to learn more about their values and aspirations for ICHCA. Last month, we hosted three world-class speakers in a superb webinar on Lithium-Ion battery cargo safety. The videos of the presentations are available on our web site until 28 November. I am delighted, as ever, to commend the latest edition of ‘Inside ICHCA Australia’, providing wide-ranging information about the work of our Australian Chapter as well as fascinating world-wide content.

Let’s keep raising safety standards together!

CEO, ICHCA International
