CTU-Code Course


Who needs a CTU code training?

Whoever loads or unloads cargo transport units (CTUs) must be instructed according to IMDG in accordance with the CTU Code. The seminar is therefore aimed at all persons who handle containers:

Shipping personnel, dangerous goods supervisors, shipping company employees, container packing companies, and loading personnel in a wide variety of fields;

in particular to persons who load containers or are involved in the loading process.

The person who packs and secures the cargo into/onto the transport unit (CTU) is often the last person to take a look inside the unit until it is opened at its final destination. Consequently, many people in the transportation chain will rely on the skills of these individuals, including:

- Drivers of motor vehicles and other road users if the cargo unit is being transported by road;

- Railroad employees and others if the unit is transported by rail;

- Crew members of inland vessels, if the loading unit is transported on inland waterways;

- Terminal handling personnel if the cargo unit is being transferred from one mode of transportation to another;

- Dock workers, if the cargo unit is being loaded or unloaded;

- Crew members of an ocean-going vessel during transportation;

- Persons required by law to inspect the cargo; and

- Persons unpacking the cargo unit.

All of the above persons, passengers, and the public may be endangered by a poorly packed cargo container, swap body, or vehicle.


Why is CTU code training important?

The aim of the CTU Code is to provide the persons responsible for packing and loading of transport units (so-called CTUs – i.e. e.g. cargo containers or swap bodies) with tips and procedural rules of cargo transport units with CTU Code for safe packing. Both the theoretical measures and practical tips are given. In addition, the CTU Code also receives advice for all other participants in the supply chain – in particular also for the persons unpacking the transport unit.

Problems arise in particular from improperly packed and thus also unsecured cargo, incorrect information on the gross mass and the contents of the goods, as well as insufficient control of humidity – due to missing information on the transport document.

Special attention is also paid to the issue of responsibilities. According to GGVSee, the person signing the container packing certificate is personally liable for the correctness of the documents and the proper securing of the cargo in the container.

The CTU Code is intended to assist industry, employers' and workers' organizations and governments in training their personnel to safely stow cargo in containers. The CTU Code could also serve as a reference base for national regulations and become a model for internationally harmonized legislation in this area should such requirements arise.

In addition to German and English, the CTU-Code  is currently also available (for download) in French, Arabic, Chinese, Spanish and Russian.


What is the aim of the training CTU- Code?

The aim of the training according to the CTU Code is that you will be able to load a CTU (container) in compliance with the law. You will learn how to handle CTUs safely so that goods can be transported without damage. Safe loading is particularly important, which we practice with you on your containers on site. We explain to you the legally compliant documentation as well as the practical feasibility within the framework of the CTU Code Annex 10.


How long does the CTU code training take?

The CTU Code training includes eight teaching units and lasts one day. The exact time planning regarding start and end we make together with you. We will clarify details, contents and the exact course of the training together with you. We will gladly take your individual wishes into consideration.


Where does the CTU Code training take place?

The CTU Code training takes place at your site. This means that you do not need to plan any travel time for your employees. We train your employees on your containers with your loading equipment so we ensure that the training is maximally relevant to practice.


What is the maximum number of participants that can attend a CTU Code seminar?

We recommend training a maximum of 10 people at a time. This way, we ensure that each participant has enough time to practice. Questions of the participants can also be addressed individually.


What previous knowledge do participants need for the training?

Participants do not need to have any special previous knowledge to attend the CTU Code training.

How much does the CTU Code training cost?

The CTU-Code training costs € 990,– inclusive of VAT plus travel expenses for up to 10 participants. There are no additional costs for handouts or participant certificates, they are all covered within the amount.
