elciem has worked on a number of cargo and freight handling projects. We have worked with both the Marine or Cargo Underwriters to review how stock is stored and on behalf of the handler’s insurers or brokers.
We have also inspected transit warehouses as part of supply chain audits that review the criticality of distribution hubs within a wider supply chain.
Understanding the physical fire protection measures and site security features are critical when protecting cargo. With so many different kinds of cargo, commodity classification and storage, physical protection can often be found to be inadequate requiring the evaluation and input of an engineer with extensive knowledge of sprinkler protection standards.
At elciem our consultants understand the challenges of adequately protecting cargo and freight warehouses and the stock within them.
