EU: CEPI launches Load Transport guidelines for pulp and paper products

07 August 2014

The Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) has launched a guideline document on general cargo securing instructions for pulp and paper products. CEPI expects the industry to adopt it as a best practice. The guidelines will help everyone involved in the transport chain (planning, preparation, supervision or control) ensure safe transportation. The document is split in two parts, starting with the basic cargo securing principles, such as lashing, sliding and tipping. The second and largest part deals with instructions for pulp and paper products in particular, detailing arrangements necessary to prevent movements sideways and in forward and backward direction (CEPI News Item, 9 July 2014).
