Stricter cargo securing requirements in the EU
However, 20 May 2018 saw the introduction of a new, stricter EU directive on cargo securing. This was a move welcomed by Trioplast. The directive concerns all freight traffic passing through the EU and underlines the fact that everyone involved in the logistics chain also bears their share of the responsibility – from those developing and producing packaging through the carrier loading the cargo to the driver behind the wheel. Carelessness, ignorance and cost savings can, in best case scenarios, result in prosecution under OHS legislation; in worst case scenarios, they can result in fatal accidents.
