A lot of material has been published about load securing in the last few years. The necessity for correct load securing has been unanimously confirmed by experts. However, the most effective methods are subject to fierce discussion. New regulations have been introduced and old regulations have been reworked. A range of recommendations and handbooks have appeared on the market designed to help the user, but these books do not always live up to expectations.
When selecting load securing methods and using load securing materials, economic considerations should obviously play a significant role, but safety should never be compromised as a result.
This part of the Handbook is designed to provide the user with information, particularly with regard to the practical techniques of load securing. But at the same time, as far as this is possible, the background and context will also be discussed from the theoretical point of view. It is impossible to do full justice to this topic given the limited number of pages available. However, the author hopes that this work will offer a suitable introduction to this topic.
