U.S. Cargo Control Prepares Owner-Operators for Roadcheck

To help prepare owner-operators for the upcoming International Roadcheck, U.S. Cargo Control is offering special prices on winch straps, ratchet straps and shoring beams through LCAPP.

The 30th annual International Roadcheck by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will take place June 6-8, 2017. During the 72-hour period, CVSA commercial motor vehicle inspectors throughout North America will conduct random inspections of commercial vehicles and their drivers.

This year, CVSA reports it will place special emphasis on cargo securement safety violations. Inspectors will focus on safe cargo securement regulations while conducting the North American Standard Level I inspection. The 37-step inspection includes examination of driver operating requirements and vehicle mechanical fitness.

U.S. Cargo Control is offering discounts to Landstar BCOs on certain straps and beams through June 30, 2017.
