TT Club award to Hapag-Lloyd

The TT Club has awarded its Innovation in Safety Award to Hapag-Lloyd for its Cargo Patrol initiative to identify misdeclared dangerous cargo.

The TT Club award was presented to the head of Hapag-Lloyd’s cargo patrol team Ken Rohlmann at ICHCA’s 65th Anniversary Conference in Las Palmas this week. Hapag-Llouyd beat out five other candidates on the short list for the award, the second company to win following the inauguration of the award last year.

In introducing the award, international freight insurer TT Club’s Risk Management Director Peregrine Storrs-Fox commented, “One of the more serious issues that continues to blight the entire shipping industry is non-compliance in relation to the transport of restricted commodities and dangerous goods. It is estimated that this is the root cause of a major shipboard fire, on average every 60 days. All shipping lines have attempted to mitigate the problem but Hapag-Lloyd has long been at the forefront, creating in 2011 what has become the ‘Cargo Patrol’ search engine.”

Cargo Patrol has grown year on year and now identifies around 1,250 potential undeclared or misdeclared bookings each day. “During 2016, the total of 264,000 alerts resulted in 4,200 positive ‘hits’ – many of these bookings were subsequently cancelled by the line.  As this often results in the ‘problem’ cargo moving on to another line, Hapag-Lloyd has taken the decision to pass its software to IBM for further development and in order to make the solution accessible to all shipping lines,” TT Club noted.

In accepting the award, Ken Rohlmann said, “Hapag-Lloyd is delighted to receive this prestigious Innovation in Safety Award. I’d like to dedicate the award to my colleagues from the Hapag-Lloyd IT department, who built Cargo Patrol as an in-house solution, and of course to my Cargo Patrol Team, who tirelessly investigate all the potential misdeclarations day by day. This award will further motivate us in the work to keep our crews safe.”

The judges also chose this year to award a Highly Commended honour, going to Safety Ammo, which worked with DP World Brisbane to develop and successfully implement a “Smart Pinning Station” that uses RFID and radar technology to create a safe zone around the twistlock handling area and monitor the location of personnel relative to containers and equipment. 

ICHCA International’s Captain Richard Brough thanked Joseph Westwood Booth, the IMO’s Senior Deputy Director, Maritime Safety, who presented the award and also commented, “ICHCA is proud of the level on safety initiatives that the award has encouraged and would like to thank TT Club for its help in administering the awards process and financial support through its continued sponsorship.”
