The use of freight containers, swap bodies, vehicles or other
cargo transport units substantially reduces the physical
hazards to which cargoes are exposed. However, improper
or careless packing of cargoes into/onto such units may be
the cause of personnel injury or serious and costly damage
to the cargo or equipment.
A great many people in the transport chain rely on the skill of
those working in cargo transport units, including road vehicle
drivers and other road users, rail workers, crew members of
vessels on inland waterways, handling staff at transfer terminals, dock workers, crew members of seagoing ships, those
inspecting cargoes and those who unpack the units. This code
of practice outlines best practices for cargo transport units.
