ICHCAs World

The International Cargo Handling Coordination Association (ICHCA), founded in 1952, is an independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving the safety, security, sustainability, productivity and efficiency of cargo handling and goods movement by all modes and through all phases of national and international supply chains. 
ICHCA International’s privileged non-government organisation (NGO) status enables it to represent its members, and the cargo handling industry at large, in front of national and international agencies and regulatory bodies. Its Expert Panel provides technical advice and publications on a wide range of practical cargo handling issues.
ICHCA International operates through a series of autonomous national and regional chapters – including ICHCA Australia, ICHCA Japan and ICHCA Canarias/Africa (CARC) – plus Correspondence and Working Groups to provide a focal point for informing, educating, networking, shaping and sharing industry views to improve knowledge and best practice across the global cargo chain.

Why our members value ICHCA

“During all the years that I have been a member of this highly valuable group of experts, I have used many of the publications when analysing accident root causes, as well as when making safety recommendations to companies, vessels and operators in the accident investigation process.”

“The value I see is the industry experience and resource materials, which are invaluable.  The network of industry related participants is also wonderful.”

“I enjoy the networking with people from all over the world.  Many problems can be solved easily by contacting one of the members.”
