Dry cargo transport configuration

• Dry cargo are packed in CTBs


• CTBs are protected by pink poly plastic bags
• CTBs are stored in dedicated containers or boxes

Part of Expected documentation for receiving operations

•Lists of the content of each container (CTBs identification


n°)
•Content of the CTBs of which the handle can be dangerous
for the people or the material
