1 1 Cefic Ship Vetting Workshop Brussels, 12 October 2011 Cefic logistics strategy and best practices for safe and sustainable logistics Jos Verlinden

2 2 Purpose of Ship Vetting Workshop Explain principles and good practices of ship vetting Present existing ship inspection schemes Explain practical aspects of analysing ship inspection reports Sharing of company experiences

3 3 European Chemical Industry Council: Cefic is the voice of the European chemical industry based in Brussels Cefic represents 27,000 chemical companies that produce 29% of the world chemical products and employ over 1.2 million people Staff & network: 150 staff 4000 industry experts from companies & federations Horizontal Programmes, Strategy Implementation Groups and Issue Teams 150 Sector Groups Members 28 national federations in Europe 50 major international companies 450 business company members CEFIC was founded in 1972 Who is Cefic?

4 4 Cefic Logistics: Vision, Mission & Objectives Identify and prioritise key logistics opportunities and challenges for the chemical industry, and it develops and steers a strategy and action programme to address these, taking into account legal, political and company boundaries. The chemical industry is managing its supply chains in such a way that it is at the forefront of logistics development, safety and sustainability, offering a competitive edge in the global environment. Vision Mission Main Objectives Advocate the chemical industries’ position Develop and promote industry best practices on cost effective, safe, secure and sustainable logistics, supporting the chemical industries’ RC Programme Develop and manage systems and tools for member companies to improve their safety standards and performance

5 5 Cefic Logistics Priority Areas and Issue Teams Services and Systems Policy & Regulations Promotion & Communication Best Practices Transperanto SQAS Transport Regulations ERICards Vehicle Weights Promotion Best Practices Cargo Securing Sustainable Transport Safety of (un)loading Learning from accidents ICE Emergency Response Maritime & Barge Transport Every 2 years the priority issues are reviewed by the Cefic Strategy Implementation Group (SIG) Logistics

6 6 Main Cefic achievements to date Best Practices SQAS Advocacy  Behaviour Based Safety (BBS)  Logistics performance reporting  Driver waiting times  Transport equipment  Security of transport  Transperanto  ICE Emergency Response  Cargo securing  Safe loading/unloading  Transport GHG A world class assessment system for LSP’s:  5 SQAS modules  70 accredited assessors  4,000 assessments  20,000 consultations  Dangerous goods regulations  European transport policy  Sustainable logistics  Rail Single Wagons  Vehicle weights (44T)

7 7 7 Responsible Care Voluntary initiative of the global Chemical Industry « Responsible Care is the world-wide chemical industry’s commitment to continuous improvement in all aspects of Health, Safety and Environment performance of its products and processes and to openess in communication about its activities and achievements. »

8 8 ECTA (European Chemical Transport Association): European RC Programme for chemical transport companies Passing Responsible Care on along the chemical supply chain FECC (European Association of Chemical Distributors): European RC Programme for chemical distributors Responsible Care Partnerships

9 9 9 Cefic Pan-European Public Opinion Survey (PES) 2010 Perception of Transportation of Chemicals 11 countries / 1,000 people in each country 81% coverage of EU27 population  Public perception of chemical transport is better than general chemical industry image  Majority of people recognize the need for transport and agree that most transport companies show a responsible behaviour  There is low awareness of industry transport safety initiatives  Most important concerns: safety / accidents / hazardous products  Public perception is better in North Europe than in South Europe  Rail transport is the preferred transport mode

10 10 Perception of Transportation of Chemicals „Most companies that transport chemicals operate in a safe and responsible manner“ EU total agree strongly agree somewhat disagree somewhat disagree strongly don‘t know

11 11 Net Perception of Transportation of Chemicals „Most companies that transport chemicals operate in a safe and responsible manner“

12 12 Cefic Pan-European Public Opinion Survey (PES) 2010 Perception of Transportation of Chemicals  Low public awareness but relatively good reputation  Pro-active transport safety approach seems to be effective

13 13 Cefic Pan-European Public Opinion Survey (PES) 2010 Perception of Transportation of Chemicals Low public awareness but relatively good reputation Pro-active transport safety approach seems to be effective BUT No reason for complacency We need to stay vigilant One bad accident can destroy our good reputation

14 14 Rena stranded at Bay of Plenty - New Zealand 5 October 2011 “Ship carrying 2,000 containers is stuck fast on reef. Liberian-registered vessel stranded 12 miles from New Zealand.”
