The CTU Code Quick Guide Launch at Genoa Shipping Week


The Cargo Integrity Group receives the support of Bureau International Containers and Centro Internazionale Studi Containers in publishing its Quick Guide to the CTU Code, says a press release published on their website.

CTU the greatest use

Continuing its mission to encourage the greatest use of, and adherence to, the guidance generated by the IMO, the ILO, and the UNECE and published in the Code of Practice for the Packing of Cargo Transport Units (CTU Code), the group of five international freight transport organizations has now added Italian to six other languages in which its Quick Guide is available.

In underlining the cooperation CIG has received in translating and providing peer review of
the text, Peregrine Storrs-Fox, Risk Management Director at freight transport insurer TT
Club commented, “It is vital to the cause of disseminating CIG’s Quick Guide to the CTU
Code as widely as possible that those who are involved first-hand in packing containers,
securing cargo and declaring content accurately can access in their own language this
introduction to the Code’s definition of good industry practice. We are indebted to BIC and
C.I.S.Co for their help with this Italian version. Their industry knowledge and expertise has
been key in producing an accurate translation.”

Delighted to publish in six languages

The Italian Quick Guide and Container Packing Checklist are available HERE in addition to
versions in all six official IMO languages – Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and
Spanish. The Group is delighted to have been able to translate its publications into all these
languages, encouraging wider easy access to the materials.
