When transporting goods, many are involved to achieve a common result. The common result is the safe movement of the goods from the producer to the consumer.
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...
Anti-slip mats are often regarded as a panacea for load securing, but is that really the case? 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.
Stowage of a container does not begin when it is in the yard with the rear doors open, but already when it is clear that a container is required.
Those involved or affected are not only those who load the container, but also those who develop, design, plan the manufacture of the goods or commodities to be...
The container is often considered as a transport box with which you can do anything. However, cargoes are stowed in the container for which it is not built at all. Therefore, it seems necessary to describe the characteristics of the container in addition to the technical standards and regulations.
Dimensions of a container
Since the container in its present form was invented in America, based...
The "Convention for Safe Containers" was adopted by the IMO (International Maritime Organization) in 1972 and incorporated into German law in 1976 with its publication in the Federal Law Gazette.
It is a set of rules intended to ensure that all container manufacturers and owners worldwide manufacture, test and repair the means of transport according to uniform criteria. In the process, the set of rules is supplemented by some...
Since the container is one of the most common means of transport, you can also see many on the road, mostly from the rear.
On the rear doors there is a lot of information, which is very important for the one who has to load containers.
Therefore, in this episode I would like to explain the marking and its meaning.
In the upper third are located on the...

In addition to new products such as the possibility of booking online courses on the subject of load securing, a new online store has been set up above all.
The newly chosen strategy is now paying off. Because many customers have already been waiting for the opportunity at...
Soft packaging, such as palletized bagged goods or big bags, is difficult to secure for transport. The load can settle or easily deform on its way from A to B. This can result in cross straps sagging or slipping. A possible consequence is that cross straps of conventional restraint systems quickly sag or slip down. This problem has occupied our research department for a long time and now we have a...
