Lashings are used as an essential means of transport cargo securing. Adherence to industry standards must be observed; otherwise it could result in damage to both cargo and vessel itself. Lashings must be regularly tested for strength and security before use.
There are various methods for securing cargo. Some methods require more time or money than others; Cordstrap composite lashing systems provide fast and cost-effective methods of lashing cargo inside containers while inflatable dunnage bags filled with air can prevent the contents from shifting around inside them.
Mechanical lashing methods involve mechanically fastening cargo to an anchor point such as the deck or main structure of a ship. This may be accomplished through welding the unit directly to the deck or using twist locks on containers, while on RoRo vessels equipped with this equipment it may involve welding the trailer directly onto its trestle trestle.

There are various lashing techniques that can be used to fasten items together in a relatively rigid manner, most commonly for survival construction projects (poles, masts, scaffolding legs and trestles) but also other purposes. Lashings typically use clove hitches or timber hitches when tied. Lashings may also be combined with other knots and tie methods in order to form structures capable of fulfilling project goals.
Marine surveyors are responsible for inspecting whether equipment, machinery or containers shipped from shipper’s warehouse to port of destination will pass their transportation safely without suffering damage along the way. This involves inspecting cargo securing methods and arrangements based on shipping regulations as well as conducting calculations to ascertain safety forces such as frictional force, horizontal force impact force compression force in order to find out how best to secure cargo during transit.
Marine surveyors offer more than cargo stowage and lashing assessments; they can also conduct flatrack surveys as well as container vanning inspections to make sure all necessary measures have been taken to keep goods secure during transport.
