OTTAWA, Ont. A handbook about the new Cargo Securement rules in place in Canada and the US has been unveiled by the Canadian Trucking Alliance.
The new Cargo Securement regulations have been a compliance challenge for industry and for enforcement. This comprehensive full colour guide features more than 600 illustrations and will assist anyone who transports cargo.
“Practical Cargo Securement is the most complete reference on the new Cargo Securement regulations available anywhere,” said David Bradley, CEO of the Canadian Trucking Alliance. “It is a must-have for commercial transport drivers and anyone else involved with handling freight. CTA specialists were at the table when the regulations were written and have an insight and understanding of the rules and how they are meant to be complied with, that is invaluable.”
The handbook covers general cargo requirements and the 11 specific commodities addressed in the regulations. One chapter is entirely devoted to securing cargo inside vans and other closed vehicles. Complete up-to-date regulations for the US and Canada are included in the appendix.
It is now available through the provincial trucking associations. The book is written in an easy-to-understand format and provides invaluable information for drivers, shippers and carriers, says the CTA. The book is available for $15 each when purchased by the box of 20. Single copy price is $20 (plus applicable taxes).
In the near future a Web site will be launched containing more information about the book and related materials, at www.practicalcargosecurement.com.
