ISRI and Members Help Develop Standards for Lugger Truck Container Securement Adopted by Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance

For several years ISRI has worked tirelessly with ISRI members, lugger manufacturers, and other common interest groups to develop standards for lugger truck container securement that would be adopted by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), meet the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) standards, and simplify cargo securement procedures for an operator.

In August of 2020, as a joint effort, Ace Brother’s Equipment, Inc. ISRI, the Recycling Education & Research Foundation (RERF), Sadoff Iron and Metal Company, Whealon Towing & Service Inc., and the Wisconsin State Patrol put together resources to test equivalent means of securement for lugger trucks that were approved by CVSA, complied with FMCSA, and it would allow an operator to secure a container with less effort, which in essence saves a company time and money (increases truck utilization and driver productivity).

For more details review the attached CVSA Inspection Bulletin, or contact ISRI’s Senior Safety Director, Commodor Hall.
