Packaged Chemicals by Sea: Risk Mitigation

We can order this from our supplier
This new publication from the CDI provides an overall understanding of the safe distribution of packaged chemical products by sea. It will reinforce existing knowledge of employees and managers, and serve as a consolidated informative guide for those new to the industry. It looks in detail at every stage of the supply chain, including risk management, regulations, packaging and cargo transport units, hazards and hazard classification, environmental protection, health and safety, emergency response and supply chain security.

Corporate success is built on reputation and good public image and it can easily be destroyed by a single accident or incident. More than ever before, companies in the chemical distribution industry must meet mandatory regulations and extensive training requirements. However, training is often restricted to a specific sector, resulting in managers, employees and contractors having limited understanding of the total marine supply chain. This surface knowledge creates risks that have to be mitigated to ensure a sustainable industry.

This publication provides insight into the entire marine logistic distribution supply chain and the responsibilities of chemical manufacturers and their service providers. It draws on the wide knowledge and experience of all stakeholders and participants in the CDI global “International Marine Packed Cargo Audit Scheme” (IMPCAS) and introduces the industry partners and their relationships within the supply chain.

The book explains the basic chemistry of products, the management systems and the regulations that control the transport of dangerous goods by sea. It simplifies the complexity of assessing and managing risk and outlines the procedures for health and safety, environmental performance, security and emergency response. The practices described support Corporate Social Responsibility within a company and the long-term sustainability of the supply chain, as well as helping to ensure the long-term environmental protection of the seas and the environment.

Focused on shipments by sea, the scope addresses the activities of all distribution supply chain sectors and service providers. The chain of custody is examined in detail, from the manufacturer’s warehouse to the export terminal and onward from the receiving terminal to the customer.

The book includes supplements of each CDI IMPCAS Audit Questionnaire.

Written by the Chemical Distribution Institute, the book is endorsed by Associated British Ports (ABP), the International Cargo Handling Coordination Association (ICHCA), the Responsible Packaging Management Association of Southern Africa (RPMASA) and the TT Club.
