Various sources of potential pest contamination exist throughout the global freight supply chain. Both national legislatures and multinational regulators are keen to minimise potentially devastating consequences to agriculture and the natural environment that unwanted invasive pests can deliver. All those involved in the movement of cargo internationally must heighten their awareness and tighten biosecurity measures.
Debris from the previous load may be contaminated, as can the cargo to be packed if this debris is not thoroughly cleared. To mitigate the risk, always clean inside of the unit before returning it to the supply chain and ensure the cargo to be packed is free from pests.
