More and more regulations are coming in to force. These new rules impact operations along the cargo chain worldwide.
ICHCA, the voice of the global cargo handling industry at IMO and other international bodies, facilitates a dialogue between industry and the regulators that has never been more needed.
Delegates will be convening from 23 countries worldwide to share hard-won experience, innovative new thinking and technology to develop mutual understanding, share experiences, explore innovation and review appropriate policy and regulation that can contribute to safe, clean, compliant and efficient cargo operations.
Delegations from hard to reach African ports, logistics, transport, shipping and shipper executives – from Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea and Ghana will be in attendance – countries shaping the next generation of cargo handling for growing intra-Africa and international trade – including high level sessions on Africa, the Mediterranean and OBOR with presentations from senior ports and cargo logistics figures.
