Forces in excess of 3G can easily be generated during rail transport. They are a major consideration when securing cargo.

Our unique dynamic securing solutions provide shock absorbency, which is critical in this environment. We have led the way in introducing non-steel strapping on open railcars, with over 250 AAR approvals for a wide variety of applications. This article provides more information on how Cordstrap has revolutionized rail freight transport in the USA.

Our expertise on railcar applications can provide the needed technical assistance on transporting products including primary metals (steel plates, galvanized products, structural steel, pipes and tubes), base metals (billets, ingots and coils) and timber products (fiberboard, particle board, lumber).
