Load securing cardboard packaging

Common causes of accidents in truck

Studies of the German Department of Transportation could show that badly or unsecured loads is one of the most frequent causes of accidents of trucks. Nearly 70 per cent of trucks on german motorways are badly or not secured at all. As such badly or not secured cargo is one of the most frequent causes of accidents in road traffic. This makes it even more important to know what measures need to be taken for effective load securing. This is the best way to minimize the risks of transport damages and accidents, fines or legal consequences.

Important auxiliaries for load securing barrels are:

  • Slip resistant materials like anti-slip mats
  • Ashing straps (pressure ratch or Ergo-long lever ratchet)
  • Edge protectors (drum Brackets FS 50 P or a cardboard variant of 600 daN point load bearing capacity)
