Container Cargo Safety

In May 2007, dockers and truckers joined forces at an ITF meeting on container cargo safety held in Oakland (US) to establish an agenda for action following numerous reports of accidents involving unsafe container cargo.
Discussion at the meeting led to a decision to:
share information on the issue;
lobby international organisations for a cross-sectoral safety regulation;
carry out awareness raising programmes during the ITF International Road Transport Action Week in October 2007.
The ITF Road Transport Workers' Section and ITF Dockers' Section are coordinating their activites on this issue.
