Risk Focus: Temperature controlled cargo

Risk Focus: Temperature controlled cargo

The temperature controlled cargo supply chain can present operational challenges for all stakeholders, these cargoes being amongst the more sensitive transported. Through analysis of claims experience from UK P&I Club and TT Club there are a number of common errors and misconceptions which can result in deterioration or total loss of the cargo, as well as damage to the carrying equipment.

This document is intended to be a practitioner’s good practice guide covering all stakeholders throughout the supply chain whether operating, packing, unpacking or handling temperature controlled, ‘refrigerated’ or ‘reefer’ cargo transport units (CTUs). The document is structured in such a way that it follows the chronology of the supply chain.
