The number one reason that cargo gets damaged during transportation is due to the fact that it was not properly secured. The cargo should be well-secured before, during and after transportation to prevent any damage from occurring. There are several types of equipment which can be used for securing a cargo, and each type has specific requirements in order to work correctly.

Flatbed truck tarps are a large, durable cover used for transporting goods on the bed of a pickup truck. The primary feature of this type of truck tarps is that it has no sides or ends, which allows for easy access to the contents inside. Flatbed tarps are often made out of vinyl and have either one or two grommets on each corner, so they can be easily tied down with ropes or chains.  This ensures your belongings stay secure while traveling long distances over bumpy roads and through strong winds and storms.
