Container lashing and lashing certificate
Cargo protection and integrity
The transport of oversized cargo such as industrial machinery, vehicles, boats or crates, requires special measures to ensure protection and integrity of cargo as well as the safety of personnel in charge of cargo handling operations.
Lashing is the complex operation of securing and fastening cargo with belts or chains and tension levers/turnbuckles to bind it to the support on which it is placed (flat rack containers).
