Containerization and Load Securing

Containerization originated in early coal mining regions in England and Germany in the late 1700s. By the 1830s, railroads were carrying containers that could be transferred to other modes of transport. Originally used for shipping coal on and off barges, “loose boxes” were used to containerize coal. The early 1900s saw the adoption of closed container boxes designed for movement between road and rail.  Containerization continued to evolve and toward the end of World War II, the United States Army used specialized containers to speed the loading and unloading of transport ships. The first vessels purpose-built to carry containers began operation in 1951 and in the U.S. ships began carrying containers between Seattle and Alaska.

Today, approximately 90% of non-bulk cargo worldwide moves by containers stacked on transport ships. There are many different materials available to stabilize and secure cargo in containers now used in all modes of transportation. Conventional load securing methods and materials such as steel banding have been around for decades. Due to technological advancement there are new load securing options available such as polyester strapping and lashing.  All types of tensioned strapping, particularly steel, need to be handled carefully because of potential injury.

Woven cord strapping outperforms steel banding and provides optimum protection against serious injury to employees and customers. Redback’s POWERWEB absorbs impacts and load shifting that would normally break steel banding, and it will not lash-back dangerously when cut.  For more information please visit our site at www.redback.com
