What does tight fit mean for a truck load?

Positive locking on trucks is usually achieved by placing the goods against the end wall. Therefore, the decisive factor is how much force the body can absorb, e.g. in the event of emergency braking. In the European standard: "Load securing on road vehicles - Bodies on commercial vehicles - Minimum requirements; German version EN 12642:2016" - or in short: EN-12642 Code XL, both the bodies "L" and the bodies "Code XL" are defined.

Furthermore, the coefficient of sliding friction can be positively changed by the use of anti-slip mats. However, simple measures such as sweeping the loading area also have an influence on the coefficient of friction between the pallet and the truck loading area.

Form-fitting of the load units, i.e. placing the load as far as possible without gaps or by filling the stowage gaps, e.g. with stowage sacks, is also very important. Using case studies, we explain the various aspects and possibilities in practice in our blog article.
