Kinedyne LLC, a world-leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of cargo control products for the transportation industry, announces the institution of the inaugural International Cargo Securement Awareness Month. This organized observance is meant to draw attention to the critical role that proper load securement plays in commercial shipping and to help the industry prepare for CVSA’s 2017 International Roadcheck, which takes place June 6–8, 2017, in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) International Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world. This year, the Roadcheck’s special category violation emphasis is again on cargo securement; when this category was last the focus, in 2015, almost 2,500 cargo securement-related citations were issued.

“Kinedyne wants to remind everyone that conforming to good safety practices is the responsibility of every fleet and owner-operator in North America,” Paul Wolford, vice president of sales and marketing for Kinedyne LLC, said. “It is also the responsibility of every vehicle owner/user to establish programs to train operators, inspection and maintenance personnel in accordance with all applicable standards, regulations, and laws.”

In the spirit of supporting safety to drivers and the general public, Kinedyne is sponsoring the first annual International Cargo Securement Awareness Month. Kinedyne’s sponsorship of this event is a continuation of its training and support throughout a half-century of uncompromising commitment to the highest level of quality and service.

Kinedyne will offer a free Cargo Securement Regulation Training Webinar from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. EDT on May 30, 2017.
