Types of Loading Errors

Cargo needs to be loaded into trucks in a specific way to prevent a dangerous situation from occurring. Improperly loaded cargo can cause rollovers, tire blowouts, and other devastating accidents. Some of the factors that can lead to such accidents include:

  • Overloading the truck
  • Weak cargo straps
  • Failing to distribute cargo weight
  • Stacking cargo too high

Even though 18-wheelers are designed to carry a large amount of cargo, it is imperative it be loaded into the truck safely to prevent accidents or damage to the cargo. Trucking companies who neglect their responsibilities put their drivers and everyone on the road with them in danger.
