Load unit protection

What are load unit safety devices in logistics?

In order to make goods and raw materials ready for transport and operationally safe loading, load unit securing devices are used in logistics. These protect both the transporting vehicles and the cargo itself. The correct selection of a loading aid as well as the construction of the whole loading unit is the first step of the loading unit securing.

In addition, various securing means can still be used to secure the LE. Below you will learn which ones to choose from here.

What are the types of load unit fuses?

The type of load unit fuses used depends on the particular load unit and the goods being transported. To secure loaded pallets, these types of securing are most often used:

  • Strapping: The whole load unit (pallet) is strapped and tightened with plastic or metal straps.
  • Shrinking: The load unit is covered with a plastic tube which, after heat treatment, contracts and fits tightly around the load.
  • Stretching: The load unit is wrapped with a plastic film.
