Federal Motor Carrier

Safety Administration’s

Cargo Securement Rules

slide5
The North American Cargo Securement StandardLarry W. MinorFederal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
slide6
Cargo securement system must prevent the cargo from leaking, spilling, blowing or falling from the motor vehicle.
  • Cargo must be contained or secured to prevent shifting upon or within the vehicle to such an extent that the vehicle’s stability or maneuverability is adversely affected.
slide7
Securement devices and systems must be capable of withstanding the following three forces:

(1) 0.8 g deceleration, forward;

(2) 0.5 g acceleration, rearward;

(3) 0.5 g acceleration, lateral.

slide8
Vehicle structures, systems, parts, and components used to secure cargo must be in proper working order.
  • Chains, wire rope, steel strapping, synthetic webbing, and cordage used to secure articles of cargo to, or in, commercial motor vehicles must conform to manufacturing standards.
slide9
Tiedowns must be attached in a manner that prevent them from becoming loose, unfastening, or opening while the vehicle is moving.
  • Tiedowns and components of securement system must be located inboard of rub rails when practicable.
slide10
Edge protection must be used whenever a tiedown would be subject to abrasion or cutting at the point where it touches an article of cargo.
  • Edge protection must resist abrasion, cutting and crushing.
slide11
Cargo must be firmly immobilized or secured on or within a vehicle by structures of adequate strength, dunnage/dunnage bags, shoring bars, tiedowns or a combination of these.
  • Items that are likely to roll must be restrained by chocks, wedges, a cradle or other equivalent means.
how many tiedowns 393 110
How many tiedowns? § 393.110
  • The rules in this section are in addition to Section 393.106 concerning WLL.
  • When an article of cargo is not blocked or positioned to prevent movement in the forward direction, the number of tiedowns needed depends on the length and weight of the articles.
393 110 tiedowns continued
§ 393.110 (tiedowns continued)
  • 1 tiedown for articles 5 ft or less in length, and 1,100 lbs or less in weight;
  • 2 tiedowns if the article is -

1) 5 ft or less in length and more than 1,100 lbs in weight; or

2) > 5 ft but less than 10 ft, regardless of weight.

393 110 d special purpose vehicles
§ 393.110(d) – Special Purpose Vehicles

Generally, basic rules do not apply to a vehicle transporting one or more articles of cargo such as, but not limited to, machinery or fabricated structural items (e.g., steel or concrete beams, crane booms, girders, and trusses, etc.) which, because of their design, size, shape, or weight, must be fastened by special methods.

slide22
The rules are applicable only to front-end structures or headerboards used as part of the securement system.
  • The performance standard applies only when the cargo is in contact with the front end structure of the vehicle.
what should you expect when we enforce the new rules
What should you expect when we enforce the new rules?
  • Same inspection procedure – less confusion about determining compliance whether the system complies with the rules.
  • Same process for placing vehicles out of service for violations – CVSA has revised the OOS Criteria to match the new rules.
psst just a reminder
Psst…. Just a reminder -

Tire pressure is very important year round—but the heat from the road in the summer months is far worse than any other season - so proper inflation is critical!

  • All tires on drives and trailers should be at 110lbs and steers 105lbs checked cold.
  • A tire will loose 1 – 2lbs a month with a good sealing cap.
  • All trucks and trailers should have a double seal cap so you don’t have to take the cap off to check pressure.
  • Caps are very important because the valve core is only strong enough to hold 70psi cold.
  • When heat is applied to the core the plastic lets air out at a faster rate.
  • If you do not have a tire gauge let George know and we will get you one.
  • Thanks
