Practical Cargo Securement – Guidelines for Drivers, Carriers and Shippers
"Practical Cargo Securement" was previously sold by the American Trucking Associations through a license agreement. Techni-Com is the publisher and now sells direct. This is the most complete reference on the cargo securement regulations available anywhere. Written in an engaging style that is interesting and easy to understand, this is a “must-have” for drivers as well as enforcement staff. It has been described by carriers and trainers as “the bible” on cargo securement regulations. The book contains over 600 illustrations. It covers the general cargo requirements and the 11 specific commodities addressed in the regulations. Navigation panes on each page make it easy to find the information you need. Up to date regulations for the U.S. and Canada are included in the appendix.
