BFSV research into load unit security

Load unit on the move

Load units are secured to protect products from the stresses of transport, handling and storage (THS). Our research has shown that these securing measures are frequently over-dimensioned. A research project resulted in a reduction in securing measures for all load units of the industrial partner in question.

On the basis of our research findings, considerable savings in load-unit securing aids should be possible in many sectors of industry, especially in the food industry.

This research project was assisted by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) and the Federation of Industrial Research Associations (Allianz Industrieforschung - AiF).
