Standards for road transports



Choosing the right lashing


Lashings are the most common way to secure cargo. The choice of lashing depends on the type of goods and the choice of cargo carriers. Please, contact us for advice and recommendations in order to ensure the correct solution for your goods.

Corner protections and stops


Corner protections are used to protect products and goods from damage when using straps or lashings. The different types of stops are used to prevent the cargo from sliding against the surface.



The loadbinder is used for adjusting the length of the lashing chain. The loadbinder hooks are connected to the chain links.

Cargo bars and shoring beams


Cargo bars and shoring beams are easily used to support and separate the goods on the carrier. In our product range you will find different cargo bars such as gas cargo bars, LF bars and round alumium cargo bars.

Double decking


Double decking is a beam/track system, which makes it possible to load the goods on two levels instead of goods on goods. As a result the risk of damaging the goods is reduced and a more cost effective solution is obtained, as you can transport twice as much cargo.


Thermo products


Forankra has a wide range of thermo-products, that can be used on most types of cargo carriers. With highly insulating material in the thermo-walls and thermo covers good insulation between different temperature zones can be obtained, enabling safe transportation of frozen and refrigerated products as well as frost-sensitive products.
