Pakistan International Container Terminal (PICT), a subsidiary of International Container Terminal Services, Inc.’s (ICTSI) became the first container terminal in Pakistan to obtain the ISO 45001:2018 certification, the world’s first integrated international standard for occupational health and safety.
