Secure transport

As every driver knows – loading matters. Poor positioning and security can mean accidents, damaged goods, fines or theft. And that affects the customer satisfaction and therefore your profitability. 

Our secure transport course draws on years of Volvo safety research to help you take the risk out of loading. We’ll look at the forces at work within a moving vehicle, different types of equipment for securing loads and handling goods, and the regulations every driver needs to know. You’ll also leave with strategies to protect against theft.
