Shipper group says collaboration is the key

The Global Shippers’ Forum (GSF) has said that working together is key to improving the transport and logistics supply chain as it releases its annual report.
The shipper group said that working with other organisations and supply chain participants was key to several of its achievements last year, including the publication of its Working with Containers Guide, The Value of Air Cargo to the Global Economy report and Maritime Emissions Policy Briefing.
It also helped create new guidelines for the safe securing of cargo and stowage of cargo transportation units and a standardised contract for the transport of ocean containers.
GSF secretary general Chris Welsh said: “It is really pleasing to see our work on behalf of global shippers being increasingly recognised by the key international transport organisations that draw up the policies and set the rules impacting shippers globally.
“We have shown that by working constructively with these organisations and with our supply chain partners, shippers can be highly influential in helping shape the policies that affect them.”
GSF said that it also welcomed new members last year, with shippers’ councils from Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and South Africa confirming membership arrangements.
