Know the risks around cargo storage.
In a world engaged in moving cargoes from one place to another, it is easy to spend time focused on what is being moved and the risks involved in transit. Inevitably, there will be multiple places where the goods will ‘rest’, either as an interface between different modes of transport or for other trade needs.
This page looks at the risks of storing cargo from dangerous goods to theft, to weather risks, to abandonment of cargo. We will be releasing a new series of TT brief documents that will look at warehouse safety, security, flooding risk and fire risk.

This bulletin considers all aspects of supply chain security, highlighting TT Club claims statistics along with a range of other industry data.
TT Club draws attention to the critical question of who is initially responsible for the state in which cargo is shipped.
This is the first in a series of ‘Risk Bytes’ which TT is providing to its membership and those in the global supply chain.
