Handbook in Cargo Securing is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art manual for anyone involved in the loading and securing of cargo to be transported by road, rail, or sea.



The book is based on the CTU Code as well as the EU BPG (European Best Practice Guidelines), meaning that it applies to cargo securing across the globe.

Many guides about blocking and lashing of cargo focus on securing of cargo for transport by either road, rail, or sea and do not consider multimodal transport or transport across borders.

This detailed manual considers the entire transport chain which is particularly useful when securing cargo for combined transport, domestically and internationally.

Companies within the transport sector can benefit from granting access to Handbook in Cargo Securing to employees responsible for the loading and securing of goods on vehicles, railway wagons as well as in containers and other cargo transport units.

Knowing and understanding how to load and secure cargo properly can prevent accidents caused by inadequately secured goods falling off of vehicles or trains.

It will also help prevent container ships from listing in rough weather as correct loading and securing of cargo inside containers are essential factors to ensure ship stability.

The book is also highly useful for teachers at high schools and other educational institutions within the transport sector who are looking for an all-in-one, detailed guide to cargo securing by road, rail, and sea.

The principles described will facilitate the teaching, and the logical structure of the internetBook makes it a breeze to find the right content at a glance.
