ICHCA International Conference 2017
TT Club Innovation in Safety Award 2017

Celebrating excellence in cargo handling safety

View last year's entries here.

The TT Club Innovation in Safety Award was launched by ICHCA International in 2016 to highlight the importance of safety at a time of increased operational demands on cargo handling infrastructure and operations worldwide. Our goal was equally to champion and celebrate the many companies and individuals around the world who are 100% dedicated to ‘making it safe’ every day, and to acknowledge and foster innovation to improve safety in cargo operations and logistics.

Both ICHCA International and TT Club, the Award Sponsor and a Premium Member of ICHCA, have a fundamental commitment to risk reduction throughout the supply chain industry and, in particular, to safety within cargo handling operations. This is paramount to the philosophy of the two organisations and the Award reflects this commitment.

The 2017 award ceremony takes place on Tuesday 3 October at the Hotel Santa Catalina in Las Palmas after day 1 of the ICHCA International Conference 2017 and is a principal part of the evening's awards programme. A key port for African trade, Las Palmas is also the home hub to ICHCA's thriving Canaries and Africa Region Chapter.

Open to anyone – an individual, team or company – involved in cargo logistics, award entrants are required to show that a product, idea, solution, process, scheme or other innovation has resulted in a demonstrable improvement to safety.

Entry submissions for the award expired on 20th July
