‘Move it or lose it!’ – the VOSA way

Care must be taken when loading and unloading vehicles as the position of the load will have consequences in the event of sudden braking or a collision.

In the case of a rigid vehicle with rear access only, the load will be removed from the rear of the vehicle. After a number of drops it is possible that the front axle could become overloaded as the centre of gravity moves forward – something worth considering when loading the vehicle.

For a curtainsider operator, without due consideration to the order of delivery, it is possible that a space could develop between the load and the bulkhead.
