Secure and reliable lashing points are critical when transporting heavy machinery and cargo. These critical components guarantee the safety of goods in transit and minimise potential damage and costs. In addition, appropriately secured loads significantly reduce the risk of accidents caused by shifting cargo, protecting drivers, passengers, and other road users*.

The Importance of Secure Lashing During Transport

Imagine a scenario where a load shifts unexpectedly during transport in your heavy vehicle. Not only could it damage the cargo itself, but it also poses a significant risk of accidents for drivers, passengers, and other road users. This is why proper load restraint using certified lashing equipment, as mandated by the Australian Load Restraint Guide, is absolutely crucial.

RUD is a world leader in the lifting and lashing industry and offers a comprehensive selection of lashing points with capacities ranging from 3,000 to 32,000 daN. These lashing solutions cater to diverse sectors, including the lashing of heavy and large loads in cargo transportation, vehicle transport, railway operations, and construction equipment.

Uncompromising Quality and Compliance

RUD takes quality and compliance seriously. All RUD lashing points undergo rigorous 100% crack testing and adhere to the strictest quality control procedures. This ensures that you receive reliable and compliant products that meet the demands of heavy vehicle transport.
