When securing loads, there are different securing methods for every load. In the following video clip you will learn which load securing measures are appropriate and reliable.

If the load securing method cannot be properly determined due to the nature of the load (e.g. packaging, centre of gravity), then please ask for instructions regarding adequate load securing from the loader.
