International Safe Transit Association - Event Information


Event Name:Over-the-Road Load Shift Investigative Case Study
Description:A major brand owner was receiving feedback from their distribution facilities of abnormally high amounts of “dumped” loads upon arrival from their production facility. Dumped loads meant unit loads that completely tipped over during transport. This presentation will highlight some of the interesting investigative work that was initiated to determine whether abnormal dynamics were occurring during transport between the production facility and two specific distributors.
