FORWARDERS NEED TO IMPROVE LEVELS OF DUE DILIGENCE TO AVERT THE RISKS TO CARGO SECURITY

Loadstar on 25th September said that it was all about empowering all the forwarders to ask the relevant questions with the necessary knowledge for the shipment in hand.  Once the due diligence is done, it’s then about turning to the goods in transit and making sure they are transported under the right conditions and that these are maintained.  forwarders needed to ask, on every shipment, what is being shipped, where it is being shipped to and who their customers are.  However, the senior loss prevention executive at TT Club, Mike Yarwood, said he believed the rise of e-commerce had made the job harder, by lowering the bars to entry and leaving many forwarders unaware that they may be shipping dangerous goods.  Yarwood called on regulators, industry bodies and governments to put greater emphasis on improving the visibility of the CTU Code.
