Mission and Aims

ICHCA International is dedicated to improving the safety, security, sustainability, productivity and efficiency of cargo handling and transport by all modes.

  • Promote efficient cargo handling in appreciation of its vital function to world trade, national economies, business and industry, and the livelihood and wellbeing of many hundreds of thousands of workers right around the globe
  • Assist co-operation between many different parties as a critical factor to the safety and overall performance of today’s increasingly complex cargo chains, which often reach across multiple continents, cultures, jurisdictions, transport modes and logistics nodes
  • Provide a platform, both internationally, and through its various chapters, to co-ordinate the dialogue and build relations between the many private and public sector stakeholders, to foster greater cross-party understanding, and to shape and share good practice for the benefit of all
