Road transportation - loading and securing cargo
Ensuring the safe loading and securing of road cargo involves a sound knowledge of a range of factors: the weight, rigidity and distribution of the load; the forces being exerted on the load; the suitable choice of vehicle; the fit-for-purpose cargo lashing equipment; and the most appropriate restraint techniques.
A poorly secured load can place the cargo, vehicle, driver and other road users at risk, incurring potentially significant financial and human costs through load loss and accidents.
LIU’s risk engineers have written a practical guide to help our marine clients understand and address the factors related to safely loading and securing road cargo. We call it our Road transportation – loading and securing cargo guide.
