“The value I see from ICHCA membership is the industry experience and resource materials, which are invaluable. The network of industry related participants is also wonderful.”
“I enjoy the networking with people from all over the world. Many problems can be solved easily by contacting one of the members.”

Why join ICHCA?

ICHCA International has an extensive range of specialist publications on best practice in cargo handling operations. With more than 90 documents covering health and safety guidance, technical and operational practicalities, regulatory requirements and more, the ICHCA library represents a valuable repository of cargo handling expertise.

The publications are grouped into eight core series:

ICHCA’s technical advice service provides a trusted source of information on cargo handling practice, policy and regulations.

Members can pose confidential questions to the Technical Advisor on any aspect of cargo handling and will receive feedback based on an extensive library of past queries and first-hand industry knowledge, including the active input of the ISP Technical Panel.

Compared with using channels such as LinkedIn to solicit feedback from sources whose qualifications to comment may not be fully known, ICHCA’s technical advice service gives Members a guarantee of quality information from experienced industry practitioners.

“Having a strong global reference point for technical questions is very important.

When new issues arise, there is a panel of technical experts who can research and report on the issue and lobby where necessary on a very high level.”

Special rates to attend ICHCA seminars, conferences, roadshows and networking events

Discounts on all IMO and ILO publications

Discounted training courses, including IMDG Code compliance and proper CTU packing

Some issues negatively impact business and cannot be resolved alone. ICHCA gets everyone round the table to share and communicate so that stakeholders can solve issues together.
