Lashing products allow to stabilize and keep safe your cargo during transport, avoiding slips, swings or sudden movements.
Lashing is the necessary action of fastening and stabilizing all types of packages, boxes, pallets, machines and loads to immobilize them firmly by means of the necessary and suitable materials, elements or products. In general it is trying to keep safe all kinds of merchandise transported with maritime, land or air means, in order to prevent and avoid possible damages due to blows, chafing, displacements, sudden movements, rocking or overturning of its contents.
As a general rule, the majority of loading or cargo operations in any means of transport must be linked to the lashing operations, except when the characteristic of the cargo or the means of transport facilitates a total occupation of the space and does not allow free spaces. Therefore, the need for lashing operations is a logical complement to the loading and cargo operations.
