Securing loads

Cargo nets are used by the road transport and logistics industry, and in the shipping industry, to secure loads to prevent them from shifting during transport, as well as to deter theft.

Shipping

In shipping, cargo lift nets are used to load and unload cargo. The net is spread out by stevedores, who load the goods onto it. They then attach the cinches to a crane hook. Lifting the hook draws the corners of the net around the cargo. This results in a balanced and secure load which can be safely hoisted. Goods are transferred from one place to another in the construction industry using cargo nets. When used to transfer cargo by helicopter, they are referred to as “underslung” cargo nets. We have cargo nets for sale. Also used on bakkies or open vehicles to secure loads being transported and as a safety feature on mines throughout Africa.

In maritime situations, cargo nets can be slung over the side of a ship to allow passengers stranded in the water to climb aboard to safety.
