Intelligent BPW Cargo Restraint

TRANSPORT damages caused by poorly secured freight are routine in the transport business with serious accidents and damages to the load occurring due to swaying or unstable trailers.
BPW is now tackling one of the main causes with their novel intelligent cargo restraint system, iGurt, which checks and fully documents the tension of the lashing straps throughout the entire transport process.
Loose cargo is estimated by BPW to be the cause of 20 to 25% of accidents in heavy-load traffic. The iGurt aims to reduce this by providing a system that tracks the restraint through permanent status monitoring. All the devices in use display the respective preload force on the housing unit. It also provides information on excessive preload force, which might damage a susceptible load.
