Information

Vehicle Lashing Points

Brittany Ferries' strict policy in relation to the number of lashing points provided on trailers was highlighted recently when a vehicle was refused shipment due to it having insufficient securing rings. Customers are reminded of their responsibility to observe statutory requirements.

Guidance notes on the lashing of vehicles is given in MGN 418 (M)(Marine Guidance Notes) Roll-on/Roll-off Ships: Stowage and Securing of Vehicles..

A report published on behalf of the Marine Accident Investigation Branch on 1st October 2009 recommends co-ordinated action on the part of VOSA and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency to ensure compliance. Details are available from the MAIB.
