TT Club concerned over cool chain cargo
There is action required, says TT Club. The analysis of the insurance company’s claims records over the past three years shows that temperature-controlled incidents rank in third place.
Almost 30% of these incidents involved a miscommunication of operational instructions with regard to care of the cargo, with a further 23% down to temperature setting errors. Reefer equipment failure or damage accounted for a quarter of the claims.
Amongst others, TT tries to minimise losses for both its members and all those involved in the cool supply chain with publicly available guidance documents and increasingly via online webinars. (sh)
