The use of lashing means, for example load securing straps or nets, is often time-consuming, especially for courier, express and parcel-services (CEP) using a lot stops.

On the one hand, an anti-skid system is integrated, which uses the advantages of a low-friction surface for loading and the anti-slip properties of an

Especially, the automatic lashing should increase the acceptance of the drivers for the new load securing system.
