7 February 2023

Washington, DC — In an effort to educate inspectors around the world and encourage the use of the correct measurement techniques when performing container inspections, the IICL has developed a series of 3D movies showing how to measure damages to components of dry van containers.

The “How to Measure” project is now available to the public at our website using the link https://www.iicl.org/iiclforms/assets/File/public/documents/how-to-measure-3d.pdf, the IICL will continue to add more 3D movies in the coming months. 

In addition, the IICL is also launching its online training course which replicates the traditional in-person courses except for the depot visits. The online training course was created with the support and assistance of industry experts whose collective experience totaled more than 210 years in container global management and technical expertise in the industry. The entire course takes approx. 4.5 hours to watch and is available for purchase on our website at https://testing.iicl.org/education/. Once the course is purchased, viewers will have access to the course for 15 days. More information about the course is available at https://testing.iicl.org/education/catalog/detail.cfm?id=134.
