International Guidelines on Safe Load Securing for Road Transport

Rules on safe cargo securing today vary from one country to another, making it difficult for road transport operators to know the minimum requirements for international journeys. Moreover, loads that have not been properly secured can fall off, affect the balance of a vehicle and sometimes even tip it over and cause accidents with other vehicles. The aim of these guidelines is to enable every stakeholder involved in international road transport operations anywhere in the world, to correctly load and secure goods on vehicles. When transport stakeholders implement load securing good practices from the outset, this will induce sustainable improvements in international operations and road safety standards.
