ICHCA International to honour International Maritime Organization

The International Cargo Handling Coordination Association (ICHCA) International will award the International Maritime Organization (IMO) with the inaugural John Strang A.O. Memorial Award at the ICHCA’s 65th anniversary conference in October in Las Palmas.
The IMO has been selected for the award due to its work in improving safety in the cargo-handling industry.
The John Strang A.O. Memorial Award has been created to recognise dedication to the development of the cargo handling industry, including achievements that have led to improvements in efficiency, effectiveness, health and safety, as well as the organisation or individual being a catalyst for positive change and innovation within the industry.
The judging panel noted that IMO’s continued regulatory and guidance work fulfilled all the stated criteria.
The award was named for John Strang, a pioneer and ambassador of ICHCA throughout his lifetime whose father was involved in its establishment in the 1950s.
John Strang A.O. passed away in September 2016. Sallie Strang, Board member of ICHCA International and John Strang’s daughter said, “We are thrilled that ICHCA have chosen to honour our father by launching this award in his name and we cannot think of a more worthy recipient than the International Maritime Organization.”
