What is the CTU code?This is a code of good practice for the use of containers in sea, rail and road transport. This CTU code takes into account factors such as inertia, angles α, ß… which are essential for securing your goods, but also for making you more responsible. Because do you know who is responsible for the merchandise you transport? Yes, it’s you, as the head of the company, or you, the packer. The damage caused by improperly loaded cargo can be too costly: material, human and environmental damage!

In this way, we ensure the safety of your loads, your employees, and all those involved in the transport chain.
Different methods for securing your goods
Direct lashing consists of securing the goods directly to the carrier: container, flat rack, trailer, etc. This means that these means of transport must be equipped with lashing points. Unlike top-over (or friction) lashing, it is the LC (lashing capacity) of the lashing devices that is taken into account in the calculations.
This is a direct lashing method. Lashing devices must hook onto lashing points to form loops. We can set up head loops to secure front and rear directions, and side loops to secure transverse directions.
Other lashing methods are also possible: diagonal lashing, anti-bounce lashing, strapping lashing… All these methods need to be sized according to the means of transport and the size and weight of your goods.
