Load securing

Golden rules of load securing

As the driver you are usually the one who secures the load.

Each load is to be stowed and secured in such a way that even by an emergency stop or sudden manoeuvres the goods will not slide, fall down or roll away.


If you follow the golden rules of load securing you will always be on the safe side. This video clip will teach you, in just 2 minutes, what is important and what to consider when securing loads.

Types of load securing

When securing loads, there are different securing methods for every load. In the following video clip you will learn which load securing measures are appropriate and reliable.


If the load securing method cannot be properly determined due to the nature of the load (e.g. packaging, centre of gravity), then please ask for instructions regarding adequate load securing from the loader.
