Regulations and controls are becoming increasingly strict. Drivers, carriers and loaders must demonstrate immediately and on the spot, not only for insurance purposes, but also during inspections and arrests, that they are allowed to drive the vehicle or vessel, that everything is in order technically, the type of cargo may be transported, the weight of the load is not too high and whether the load is secured in accordance with regulations.
However, there is a lot of uncertainty about the quality and safety of cargo securing.
