Superior Cargo Securement from Redback Industries

Written by  Super User

As required in the Code of Federal Regulations 49 CFR 176.76, cargo, including hazardous materials, transported in vehicles and freight containers must be secured during transport to prevent shifting of the cargo and damage to the container. This requirement is true for all modes of surface transportation due to the fact that containers are transported by vessel, rail, and highway. Accordingly, the cargo must be adequately secured to withstand the unique forces exerted on the packages during each of these modes of transport. Although there are recommended methods, the ultimate responsibility for properly securing cargo inside a container (by blocking, bracing, and strapping) resides with the packer of the container.

Ensuring that you adequately secure cargo without damaging the export cargo container or goods’ being shipped is of the utmost importance. Redback strapping stays tight during transit and is ideal for securing heavy or irregular shaped loads inside of containers and rail cars, as well as onto vessels, barges and flat rack containers.
