Description: The CTU Code is a joint publication of the:
International Maritime Organization (IMO)
International Labour Organization (ILO)
United Nations Commission for Europe (UNECE)
It provides a non-mandatory global code of practice for the handling and packing of shipping containers (and other cargo transport units) transported by sea and land. The Code is designed to address major concerns for all parties involved in global cargo securing, relating to poor practice in the packing of cargo transport units. These include inadequate securing of cargo, overloading and incorrect declaration of contents. These failings can have direct impact on members of the general public, or transport and supply chain workers – who have no control over these errors or their consequences.
