ICHCA was established in 1952 with one simple goal: to help disseminate the lessons learn from logistics operations by commercial and military personnel during World War II.

With headquarters in London and a global network of members and contacts in the cargo handling industry, ICHCA remains dedicated to improving the productivity, efficiency, safety, security and sustainability of cargo handling across the world.
