Book it right and pack it tight
As part of our commitment to continued knowledge transfer, the Loss Prevention Department of the UK P&I and TT Club have updated and consolidated our industry leading “Book it right and pack it tight” publications, to bring it in-line with the most current thinking and regulations.
This new consolidated publication explains how all those involved in particular stages of the logistics chain should follow the IMDG Code and work to its stipulations in preparing containerised shipments of packaged dangerous goods for carriage by sea. The publication also includes a comprehensive guide to the Code itself.
First produced 13 years ago, this practical guide has been updated to embrace changes brought in by amendments to the IMDG Code.
Related to the initiatives to support training and awareness, TT Club and UK P&I Club would like to engage with the global supply chain community to understand better the real needs that could be served. Please take a few moments to complete this survey and forward it to your counter-parties; the more complete the picture that can be obtained, the better tools can be fashioned to mitigate the prevalent risks.

The publication aims to define the principles of security in the supply chain and to guide all operators in the supply chain on how to enhance value through effective security implementation. It not only promotes good practice but also explains why security need not be seen as an unnecessary drain on resources and can actually provide a significant contribution to the bottom line. The booklet provides an overview of current security initiatives and technologies available to assist, but is centred on the premise that the ISO 28000:2007 management standard offers a valuable framework for implementation.
The publication aims to outline a number of general principles of good security practice as well as to offer specific recommendations to particular circumstances. Preventative security measures, although not necessarily either easy or cheap, are invariably more cost-effective and less disruptive than reactive ones.
