International legislation and regulations are imposing increasingly stringent and complex requirements on cargo securing systems. Effective and safe stowage of cargo in accordance with the regulations has become a specialist area. Far too often forwarders or shippers, use high quality cargo securing and strapping products, but lack the applications knowledge or in-depth understanding of the applicable international regulations. The result can be disastrous – thousands of accidents due to insufficient cargo restraint occur every year resulting in millions of dollars of damage and worse; the loss of life.
