The BLCH Guide focuses on the general principles of terminal management, as the infrastructure and products handles will vary substantially between terminals and the countries in which they operate.

This Guide deals with aspects common to the more manual or semi-automated terminals and the operations and issues associated with highly automated systems are outside of its scope.

Many terminals also store and handle other products such as liquefied gasses, petroleum products and vegetable oils. However, these are not covered as, in line with the CDI-T Audit Questionnaires, this guide focuses on the storage and handling of bulk and packaged liquid chemicals.
