Identifying the Issue

Before partnering with X-Pak, ASCC faced challenges with load restraint and safely meeting strict requirements for transporting chemicals. They were previously using timber pallets for securing loads, which became increasingly expensive, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to rising costs that their customers struggled to absorb. The necessity to find a more cost-effective and innovative solution to ensure the safe transport of dangerous and heavy materials was paramount.

 

The Solution: X-Pak Container Lashing System

The hazardous nature and heavy weight of the materials shipped by ASCC necessitated robust load restraints to ensure safety, prevent accidents, and comply with regulatory standards. They were also keen to save their customers money on load restraints by looking for an alternative solution to timber.

 

X-Pak recommended that ASCC implement the innovative woven X-Pak Lashing System, specifically, the pre-assembled Container Lashing.
