Cargo securing for road transport
2014 European best practices guidelines
The purpose of these guidelines is to provide basic practical advice and instructions to all persons involved in loading/unloading and securing cargo on vehicles, including carriers and shippers. They should also be useful for enforcement bodies performing technical roadside inspections in accordance with Directive 2014/47/EU and rulings of courts of law. It could also serve as a basis for Member States when taking the necessary steps for putting into practice the training of drivers, in accordance with Directive 2003/59/EC, on the initial qualification and periodic training of drivers of... certain road vehicles for the carriage of goods or passengers. The guidelines aim to provide a guide for adequate cargo securing for all situations that may occur in normal traffic conditions. The guidelines should also serve as a common basis for both practical application and enforcement of cargo securing.
