Why carriers must pay sufficient attention to the load securing procedure and use only reliable materials and equipment?
Do you know that:
- up to 70% of trucks on the roads carry incorrectly or insufficiently secured loads?
- one in five road accidents involving a truck is a “loss of cargo accident”?
- accidents due to improper or inadequate securing of cargo bring multimillion-dollar losses?
- wrong or incorrect lashing equipment are main accident reasons?
- inability to count number and type of lashing equipment increase risks of cargo damage significantly?
Only cargo that can be safely transported is loaded provided that a load securing plan is followed. Carriers must also ensure that the required equipment is properly used, including blocking bars, dunnage and stuffing materials, and anti-slip mats. With regard to cargo securing arrangements, several factors must be taken into account, including test methods, safety factors, friction factors, and accelerations.
The latter parameters are examined in detail in European Standard EN 12195-1. Securing arrangements must also comply with the Quick Lashing Guide as to prevent tipping and sliding during shipping. Cargo can be secured through blocking or positioning the goods to the walls, supports, stanchions, sideboards, or headboard. Void spaces must be kept to a minimum for store, concrete, steel, and other rigid or dense cargo types.
