ICHCA International has opened the 2021 TT Club Innovation in Safety Award and invites submissions from anyone involved in cargo logistics who can show a demonstrable improvement to safety.

ICHCA International, the global cargo handling association, has opened the 2021 TT Club Innovation in Safety Award, which aims to highlight the importance of safety at a time of increased operational demands on cargo handling infrastructure and operations worldwide. The goal of the Award is equally to champion and celebrate the many companies and individuals around the world who are 100% dedicated to ‘making it safe’ every day, and to acknowledge and foster innovation to improve safety in cargo operations and logistics.

Both ICHCA International and TT have a fundamental commitment to risk reduction throughout the supply chain, in particular to safety within cargo handling operations. Promoting such safety advice is paramount to the philosophy of the two organisations and the Award reflects this commitment.

In announcing the opening of the Award entry process for 2021, TT Risk Management Director Peregrine Storrs-Fox said, “TT has always emphasised the critical nature of loss prevention in its role as a primary supplier of liability insurance and risk management services to those in the supply chain industry. As such, we remain dedicated to encouraging safety awareness and applaud ICHCA’s initiative in offering this prestigious award. TT has worked closely with ICHCA for a number of years, producing safety advisory documents and urging sound operational.  We look forward to celebrating the wealth of safety innovation that will once more be encouraged by this Award.”

"We remain dedicated to encouraging safety awareness and applaud ICHCA’s initiative in offering this prestigious award."

The Award is open to anyone - an individual, team or company - involved in cargo logistics. Entrants are required to show that a product, idea, solution, process, scheme or other innovation has resulted in a demonstrable improvement to safety.

The deadline for entries is 12 November 2021 and full details of the entry process and judging criteria can be found in both English and Chinese at the ICHCA website.

The Award ceremony takes place in February 2022 where we will celebrate the shortlisted and winning entries.
