Why do you need to secure your load?
An adapted packaging has a limit to withstand shocks and vibrations during transportation for additional safety and protection,load securing is a necessisity.
Smart load securing protects products, environment and people, generates a cost reduction and sustains the company image.
All these points are explained in detail below:
Product protection : If 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 better protection to the packaged goods.
Human protection : Load securing helps to protect employees, people in traffic and 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 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 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 obtain their ordered products in good condition without damage and perfectly stacked to save costs on handling. Load securing enhances company's image by minimizing costs and damages. No company would prefer bad publicity caused by accidents of their products.
