Book it right and pack it tight

Guidance on packing dangerous goods for carriage by sea - IMDG code amendment 39-18

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.

1 January 2020 marked the date of mandatory enforcement of the latest version of the IMDG Code, Amendment 39-18. As a consequence, UKP&I and TT have again collaborated to update their publication 'Book it right and pack it tight'. This guide provides key insights for all actors in the freight supply chain responsible for preparing unitised consignments for carriage by sea. The guide is intended to provide an overview of the key practical duties under the IMDG Code for each stakeholder, while not seeking to meet the mandatory training requirements.
