CVSA Bulletin – Securement of Roll-on/Roll-off, Hook-Lift and Lugger Containers on Vehicle

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) has issued a new inspection bulletin to help roadside enforcement personnel determine if a roll-on/roll-off, hook-lift, or lugger box/container is properly secured.

Both the U.S. and Canada have regulations for securing roll-on/roll-off and hook-lift containers on commercial trucks, but the rules lack important details. This has led to some confusion among motor carriers, drivers, and enforcement personnel alike.

The new nine-page CVSA bulletin aims to reduce that confusion with photos and clear instructions on how the containers should be secured, whether the truck has a built-in container securement system or not.

The new inspection bulletin is available online at cvsa.org.
