Our Land Logistics Working Group is proud to announce the launch of Rev. 2.0 of the Packaging, Handling & Movement of Materials Specification.

The Specification outlines the requirements expected for the packaging and restraint of freight, and/or Cargo Carrying Units (CCU) and is to be used along with the National Transport Commission Load Restraint Guide 2nd Edition (2004).

The purpose of the Specification is to define standardised control measures for the safe packaging, handling and movement of materials onshore, as well as to/from offshore rigs and platform installations, where these requirements are not already defined in the above referenced NTC Guidance. This document is meant to clarify and add to the controls provided in that reference.

The scope of this Specification covers activities including:

  • Cargo preparation including loading and securing within the CCU.
  • Packaging of materials at the carton / crate level to ensure internal restraint is sufficient to prevent cargo movement through to the end destination.
  • Securing of Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG).
  • Restraint of materials to a pallet / skid.
