In between, there are several transportation phases in which the goods are subject to what are known as TUL stresses. TUL stands for transport-transhipment-storage. At each stage, the goods/cargo must be secured in such a way that the TUL loads do not exceed the...

However, the many observations I have been able to make during loading operations often reveal a very different picture in practice. Things are often "made worse". The how and what will be explained below. First of all, the functional principle of anti-slip mats (ARM) will be presented. Between...

Episode 10: Force-fitting

Positive securing of the load has already been dealt with in sequence 8. Now we would like to take a closer look at frictional locking. What is meant by frictional locking, how does it work and what is important when securing a load? A frictional connection is a connection between two parts over a surface, where both surfaces have a high coefficient of friction. How...
