Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA), Container Transport Alliance Australia (CTAA), and the Australian Peak Shippers Association (APSA), have partnered with the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) to create the Safe Container Loading Practices & Heavy Vehicle Safety campaign.
The campaign is part of the NHVR Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative (HVSI) program funded by the Commonwealth Government. It has also attracted the support of ICHCA Australia, and global organisations such as the Global Shippers Forum (GSF) and the World’s leading transport and logistics insurer, TT Club.
The campaign provides a FREE online Safe Container Loading Practices & Heavy Vehicle Safety course, complimented by a FREE webinar series with presentations from experts in their field.
This initiative seeks to raise awareness of best practice in container loading and cargo restraint, and the potential legal, safety and commercial consequences of poorly restrained and unevenly weight distributed cargo inside shipping containers, transported by sea or on land.
This educational campaign will be of benefit to all those involved in the supply chain including importers, exporters, container packers (in Australia and overseas), unpackers, freight forwarders / customs brokers, transport operators, stevedores and all others involved in the safe movement of containerised cargo.
