Are you DONE to receive carriers’ rejections with the clauses “load, stow, count” when cargo arrives damaged and you try to claim losses?
Check Code of Practice for Packing of Cargo Transport Units (CTU Code) to make sure you as a shipper comply. 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. It also gives you leverage to negotiate with the carrier or even cargo receiver and to prove that exporter DULY fulfilled requirements for cargo packaging and stuffing.
3.4 Packing of dangerous goods
3.6 On completion of packing
When next time you submit a cargo claim to the carrier, do not forget to mention that cargo was loaded under applicable, globally acceptable best industry practices and standards 🙂
