With more and more cargo being shipped outside Europe, Van der Vlist is finding that it has more and more movements on flat racks and in containers, so they have been looking at ways to increase their efficiency in this area.
To this end a group of Van der Vlist’s Technical Services team has recently undertaken a special course in strapping, lashing and securing. The course re-enforced the latest regulations and the appropriate and certified materials required, as well as running through different ways of working with different cargo.
The course consisted of several theory sessions as well as a day long practical case study, and all those who took part completed the full course successfully, and received a certificate. Whilst containers shipped worldwide may well be exposed to severe conditions on their journey, Van der Vlist will ensure that the cargo will be safely and securely strapped in to prevent damage, whilst being done in the most efficient manner to keep costs low at the same time.
