Why do you need to secure your load?
Even an adapted packaging has a limit of shocks and vibrations it can withstand during transportation before it collapses and that is the point when it comes to load securing. Smart load securing protects the products, protects the environment and people, and generates a cost reduction and finally supports the company image.
Load Securing Benefits
Product protection : If the cargo is secured against rolling, tipping and shifting it will absorb smaller amounts of shocks and vibrations which minimizes risks of packaging deterioration and gives a better protection to the packed goods.
Peoples' protection : Load securing helps to protect employees, people in traffic and all the people who could be the victim of accidents caused by poor load securing.
Environmental protection : In some cases dangerous liquids and other substances can leak out of broken packaging that was not correctly secured, and cause environmental pollution and threaten people's health. Load securing also contributes to safety on the roads. For example heavy bulky goods can create so much pressure on container doors that when opened the packages fall out on the road creating dangerous traffic situations.
Cost reduction : By using load securing it is possible to have a cost reduction in several ways:
- No damage to the products eliminates expenses to replace them.
- It is much easier to handle well stacked products and that reduces the time needed for unloading of containers saving on man-hours needed.
- By eliminating potential environmental and health risks it is possible to avoid unexpected expenses on removing the caused damages, etc...
Company image : All the end customers prefer to get their ordered products in good conditions without damage and perfectly stacked to save their own costs on handling. That is why it is possible to contribute to company's image by using load securing. And no company wants to get bad publicity because of accidents caused by their products.
