Many newsfeeds currently are covering mass migration arising from the war in Ukraine, following the tragic pattern from other conflict zones over years and decades. The freight supply chain, however, continues to be exploited by layers of criminal barons facilitating the unfortunate 'underbelly' of economic migration.
Current geopolitical tensions have inevitably raised the stakes in general perception around security, as well as, tragically, huge displacement of the population of Ukraine.

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.
