TRIOPLAST TO OPEN THE FIRST NORDIC TEST CENTRE FOR

CARGO SECURING

"It’s about preventing road accidents and saving lives," says Tomas Johansson, Product Development Manager at Trioplast.

 

On 1 December, Trioplast will open the doors to its Packaging & Safety Center in Smålandsstenar, Sweden and the company’s vision is clear – accidents caused by inadequate transport packaging and poorly secured loads should be minimised and, preferably, completely eradicated.

At the newly inaugurated Packaging & Safety Center, customers will be able to test their transport packaging solutions and how well they withstand acceleration, heavy braking and abnormal lateral motion. Today, poorly secured cargo and unstable loads cause 25% of all road accidents involving lorries, resulting in unnecessary personal injuries and deaths. This is an unacceptable figure and a major failing on the part of the entire transport sector.
