INSURERS from the TT Club, safety lobbyists from ICHCA and cargo handling machine makers of PEMA have called for the increased deployment of state-of-of-art collision prevention technologies and techniques.

'To minimise risk and improve port safety, three of the cargo handling industry's leading bodies have produced an information paper 'Collision Prevention At Ports & Terminals',' said the press release.



They are freight transport insurers, TT Club, together ICHCA (International Cargo Handling Co-ordination Association) and PEMA (Port Equipment Manufacturers Association).



'All relevant stakeholders have been involved in the development of this project. PEMA represents container crane and technology manufacturers, and TT Club and ICHCA International represent container terminals,' said the press release.



There is a growing number of technologies for collision prevention that can dramatically improve equipment safety and reduce risk associated with container handling, said the press release.



'However, many of these are not currently included in national or international standards. This paper suggests that such technologies should be installed on new and existing equipment, and covers major features and types of non-contact technologies for collision prevention at ports and terminals,' it said.



Collision Prevention At Ports & Terminals is now available free from the websites of TT Club, PEMA and ICHCA.
