Safety & Compliance Challenges

The container transport logistics industry chain has unique challenges in meeting it’s safety, compliance and risk obligations.

Within the chain, all stakeholders have obligations to meet multiple regulatory and legislative challenges, including Border Force and Biosecurity legislation, Chain of Responsibility (CoR) obligations under heavy vehicle safety laws, State and local government by-laws, as well as workplace health & safety.

While the rate of workplace fatalities and injuries in the sector is improving, transport remains one of the most dangerous industries in Australia. Without significant due diligence, the cost of non-compliance can cripple a business, and can place business owners and managers at risk of prosecution.

Safety Container Loading Practices

CTAA, together with Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) and the Australian Peak Shippers Association (APSA), have partnered with the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) to create the Safe Container Loading Practices & Heavy Vehicle Safety campaign.

The campaign is part of the NHVR Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative (HVSI) program funded by the Commonwealth Government. It has also attracted the support of ICHCA Australia, and global organisations such as the Global Shippers Forum (GSF) and the World’s leading transport and logistics insurer, TT Club.
The initiative raises awareness of best practice in container loading and cargo restraint, and the potential legal, safety and commercial consequences of poorly restrained and unevenly weight distributed cargo inside shipping containers, transported by sea or on land.
