Cargo Integrity Group to launch its CTU Code Quick Guide in Italian at Genoa Shipping Week
The Cargo Integrity Group (CIG) receives the support of Bureau International Containers (BIC) and Centro Internazionale Studi Containers (C.I.S.Co) in publishing its Quick Guide to the CTU Code, and the accompanying Container Packing Check List, in Italian. The official launch of the documents will occur during Genoa Shipping Week (4th–10th October).
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 orgainastions1 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.”

The Italian Quick Guide and Container Packing Checklist is now available 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.
To promote the Quick Guide and, in particular the Italian edition, partners in CIG will be contribute to conference sessions during Genoa Shipping Week. In addition to Peregrine Storrs-Fox, Lars Kjaer, Senior Vice President World Shipping Council will participate via video link. The presentations will profile the content and methods of utilisation of the publications, and how they both distill and give access to the lengthy and comprehensive CTU Code itself.
Giordano Bruno Guerrini Secretary General of Genoa based C.I.S.Co, the specialist consultancy group dedicated to container operations commented, “We are delighted to have contributed to the publication of these significant documents in Italian. The pursuit of safety within global supply chains is an aim of much of the work we carry out within the industry, and we remain dedicated to communicating all relevant information on this critical issue.”
