Lashing straps

Use Sortimo lashing straps to lash your load in the vehicle quickly and simply.

Load safety nets

Use the hard-wearing load safety nets to divide the load compartment from the driver’s cab when transporting loads that are difficult to secure.

An overview of the most important rule!

Intact securing equipment and load-securing surface

All securing equipment must be in perfect condition. In order to guarantee maximum safety, the load area must be swept clean and be free from oil at all times.

Adequate ventilation

When transporting gases, the vehicle must have adequate ventilation (floor, roof or side vents).


The vehicle and load must be checked for roadworthiness before setting off. You need to check the load securing after sharp braking or other unusual load levels.

The right securing system

The load-securing equipment and the ve­hicle must be suitable for transporting the load. The lashing facilities must have an adequate load-bearing capability (mark­ed by a sticker) and must be suitable for secur­ing the load. The permissible total weight and the permissible axle loading of the vehicle must also be taken into account.

Stable loading

The load must not impair handling and stability. The change in the centre of gravity from the load will, however, lead to modified handling of the vehicle. Heavy loads should always be stowed as low as possible in the vehicle. The load must be secured from slipping and tipping over.

Responsibility for Load Securing

  • Responsibilities of the persons involved
  • Obligation to check load securing and load distribution before setting off.
  • Obligation to check and rectify load securing during transport.
  • Obligation to adapt driving behaviour to suit the load.
  • Obligation to check load securing if someone else has loaded the vehicle.
The obligations of the dispatcher include proper stacking, stowing, lashing, wedging, strapping and securing of the load so that, during normal carriage in daily traffic (even in extreme situations), the forces acting on the vehicle do not endanger or harm goods, persons or the vehicle.
Safe loading includes the obligation of the freight forwarder to provide a suitable vehicle. This must be able to transport the load on the road in a safe manner, taking into account the stipulated dimensions, weights and axle loadings in normal daily carriage (including in extreme situations). In addition, the freight forwarder/contractor is obliged to provide the loaders and vehicle users with adequate training to enable them to load the vehicle correctly and to use it correctly on the road.

The vehicle owner is responsible for the proper condition and correct equipping of his vehicle. This also applies to equipment with load-securing items. That means that the vehicle owner must also ensure that the vehicle is equipped with adequate load-securing equipment, suitable for the load. The vehicle owner must not authorize the use of unsuitable vehicles

The loader is seen as the “manager of the loading tasks” and, for the carriage of hazardous goods, the “person commissioned by the loader”, i.e. the person entitled to take independent decisions in terms of loading. Unless there is a special individual contract provision, the responsibility of the superior extends right up to the company management. This means that the company management is responsible for load securing unless they have transferred responsibility to a subordinated person. Under law, the obligation of load securing is incumbent on the loader

Setting standards in your vehicle and workshop? Sortimo provides you with the perfect solution to do so! The use of colour codes identifies where things belong at a glance. The structure can be individually defined. For instance, you might structure the system according to the type of content (e.g. tools, consumables, etc., and/or screws, rawlplugs, etc.), according to vehicle or employee(e.g. Red = Employee A, Green = Employee B, etc.) or based on your own individual ideas. The systematic use of standard cases and BOXXes also makes it possible to standardize and ensure that everything fits together! For example, the L-BOXX is a packaging solution for tools and consumables widely used in the marketplace.


Universal lashing points

The SoboPro floor has integrated lashing points which are compatible with all ProSafe applications such as lashing straps, CargoStopp, restraint poles or load safety nets thanks to universal applications.


Floor plate

The 7-ply glued wooden floor has a thickness of 9 mm and is made of Nordic birch. Its multi-directional textured coating makes the moisture-resistant floor scratch-resistant and extremely non-slip even in wet conditions.


Original lashing points

The vehicle’s original lashing points remain available using the integrated flush lashing points in the floor, and are compatible with ProSafe.



Storage space and payloads are limited, particularly in your vehicle. Another reason to transport just the things you actually need. SR5 van racking provides a comprehensive overview in the vehicle and helps to identify tools or small components and organize them if required. This frees up more storage space for transport and also reduces the vehicle’s fuel consumption as a result of the reduced overall weight.



Work processes can be optimized by systematic organization in the vehicle, minimizing the time needed to search for and find things. Sophisticated arrangement of objects helps with efficient access to the contents. For example, we can eliminate the need to enter the vehicle by placing frequently used objects close to the vehicle doors.



Cleanliness in the vehicle reduces the time it takes you to access contents, at the same time increasing safety at work. In addition, this is the best advertisement to your customer of your profession­al working methods. Unlike an untidy vehicle, structured organi­zation in the SR5 van racking makes it possible to clean the load area simply and without the need for time-consuming clearing out. Incorporating the vehicle interior into regular vehicle maintenance definitely pays off.



It’s also easier to discipline yourself to make use of the organizational and cleaning rules in view of the aforementioned benefits. Continuous improvement forms part of the 5S method. For this reason, your workflows always need to be critically scrutinized to maximize any potential for improvement. The flexibility of the SR5 van racking system provides for a number of adaptation options, and so it can be adapted to meet the continuously changing requirements in the world of work.



The drawers offer an optimum overview with their full pull-out feature and quick access to the tools, machines or spare parts inside. Thanks to their anodized aluminium front, all SR5 elements are truly sturdy.


Long components tray

In the long components tray, awkward or long items such as pipes, cable ducts or aiming stakes can be stowed and transported safely. Opening the rear section allows contents to be removed simply and quickly to the rear.



The SR-BOXXes, which are unique in their functionality, can be integrated both on and under the shelves in the van racking using the plastic slides, meaning that the available space is used to optimum effect. Small items and consumables can be stored here.



SR-Drawer As an innovative alternative to a drawer, the SR drawer offers the tried and tested Sortimo SR drawer function, but it can be removed completely at any time. Dividers and insetboxes offer varied opportunities for organization.


Aluminium side profiles

The sturdy and compact aluminium side profiles are the basis for each SR5 shelf and require just a small space on the vehicle floor. This ensures maximum load space usage so that large items can be conveyed without any problems in the vehicle. Varied accessories for all kinds of sectors and requirements are screwed to the aluminium side profiles at any height for stepless adjustment.



The positioning of the shelves can be varied forwards and back­wards, which allows the SR5 shelf to be adapted to the contour of the vehicle to optimum effect. This ensures adequate space for the load and freedom of movement. The roof area which is other­wise hardly used is exploited to the maximum. The shelves are available in various different versions, which can be equipped with SR-BOXXes both above and below.


mySortimo labels

The lettering labels with Sortimo colour coding perfects the organization of the load space – an important foundation for efficient working.


SR5 connection points

Thanks to the standard integrated connection points, Sortimo SR5 van racking can be installed quickly and easily in the vehicle.
