ICHCA’s Technical Panel is a core working body of ICHCA International, developing technical publications, guidelines and recommendations on a wide range of issues in cargo handling and operations, supporting ICHCA’s Technical Advisory service to members and inputting to the Association’s work at IMO and other regulatory bodies.

Four new working groups were established in 2018 following consultation with the ITP’s 80+ members who represent cross-sectoral private and public-sector experience from the worlds of shipping, ports and terminals, logistics, inland transport, insurance and finance, equipment and technology.

The new Supply Chain Incident Analysis & Reporting Team (SCIART) group is led by Bill Brassington. All ICHCA Members are welcome – and indeed invited – to join. Have your say in its programme.
