Load Shift Assistance & Why It’s Important
All items will settle once you pack them into a container. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bag of chips or an 18-wheeler full of pallets. The contents will shift and move due to gravity, changing direction, and weight. On a larger scale, load shifts can be detrimental to the safety of the products, the operator of the vehicle, and anyone in the vicinity. While smaller loads can cause harm and damage once the back end is opened for unloading, bigger load shifts can cause vehicles to tip or travel out of control. Ensuring your load is securely fastened in the rear of the truck during transport is critical to avoiding this.
