The global cargo handling NGO has opened the 2nd TT Club Innovation in Safety Award, inviting submissions from anyone involved in cargo logistics.
The reward aims to highlight the importance of safety at a time of increased operational demands on cargo handling infrastructure and operations worldwide. The goal is also to champion and celebrate many companies and individuals around the world who are dedicated to such matters every day by e.g. acknowledging and fostering innovations in cargo operations and logistics.
The award is open to anyone - an individual, team, or company involved in cargo logistics. Entrants are required to show that a product, idea, solution, process, scheme, or other innovation has resulted in a demonstrable improvement to safety.
The deadline for entries is June 29th, while the ceremony takes place on October 3rd at the Hotel Santa Catalina in Las Palmas after the first day day of ICHCA International’s 65th Anniversary Conference and is a principal part of the evening's awards programme. The event itself will touch upon the future of cargo handling through five sessions on how to make the global cargo chain safe, sustainable, secure, smart, and skilled. ICHCA's flagship event promises to bring together the big names in cargo handling to discuss the best ways to improve as an industry. Tickets are reduced by 25% for those who book before May 31st.
"TT Club has always emphasised the critical nature of loss prevention in its role as a primary supplier of liability and property insurance to those in the supply chain industry. As such, we remain dedicated to encouraging safety awareness and applaud ICHCA's initiative in offering this prestigious award. TT Club has worked closely with ICHCA for a number of years, producing safety advisory documents and urging sound operational practice wherever and whenever possible. We look forward to celebrating the wealth of safety innovation that will once more be encouraged by this Award," Peregrine Storrs-Fox, TT Club Risk Management Director, said.
