Terminalisti and loaders do not know to sufficiency the lines guide of the Code for the stowage of the
Storrs-Fox (TT Club): it is necessary a greater clarity and explanation of its important recommendations in matter of
the terminalisti, the loaders and the other operators of the logistics have an insufficient acquaintance of the Tails of Practice for Packing of Cargo Transport Units (CTU Tails), the Code for the management and the stowage of the container that is introduced in 1997 and that in 2014 it has seen the effectiveness of the version updated from the International Maritime Organization (IMO), of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).

the necessity of more diffused acquaintance of the existence of the Code and of a greater cooperation of all the parts involved in supply chain in putting into practice the lines guides of the Code is emphasized today by the representatives of the Global Shippers' Forum (GSF), of the International Cargo Handling Coordination Association (ICHCA), of the TT Club and the World Shipping Council (WSC) in occasion of a session of sessantacinquesima the conference of the logistic association ICHCA that is in development to Las Palmas, in Spain.

"Recently - Peregrine Storrs-Fox of the TT has explained Club - we have realized a survey between approximately 6.000 professionals of the field in order verifying their acquaintance of the Code. To complete the questionnaire it has been meager only a 5% and this in itself indicates an acquaintance lack. Between those who they have expressed an opinion, only 56% consider that the Code is sufficient in order to face safety problems. Given the all-encompassing nature of the Code, this suggests to the necessity of a greater clarity and explanation of its important recommendations in safety matter. Al fine to improve the acquaintance of the Code, and above all its adoption - it has emphasized Storrs-Fox - is essential the cooperation of all the parts interested of all the total logistic chain".

Richard Brough, in representation of ICHCA International, has found that "in many resorts the terminals operator and the relatively smaller loaders carry out a role in the stowage of the containers and other cargo units. However they have an important role in the identification of unit loaded unsuitably, excessive, deformed or however stowed in way dangerous and the adoption of adequate measures in order to face eventual problems of safety".

Lars Kjaer of the World Shipping Council, referring always to Code CTU, has been stopped on the problem of the contamination of the container and their cargos and on the International Convention for the Protection of the Plants introduced in 1951 and successively dawned: "the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) - it has remembered - confirmation that the marine filling of container with cargos constitutes the moment of the logical chain in which he is more probable happening of a contamination with parasites. I use of the Code, supported from lines it guides aimed - it has found Kjaer - will contribute to limit this problem, since all those who are involved in international the logistic chain of the container have the duty to guarantee that the units of contained cargo and the goods are not infested by dirt, plants, vegetables, bugs or other animals".

Chris Welsh of the Global Shippers Forums has evidenced the importance of an encounter, like that today's one to Las Palmas, that it has put to I confront which operate the terminals of cargo handling with the shippers and the loaders: draft - it has observed - "of a moment essential in order to introduce ours important messages in topic of safety to all the members of the supply chain and in particular to those responsibles of the stowage and contained safety of the goods in the cargo units. We continue to speed up the cooperation of all these we leave interested to the aim to elevate the level of safety of the field in this crucial aspect".
