New Kinedyne Video Series Teaches the Basics of Cargo Securement


What type of strap is required to secure construction materials? What does a winch do, and why is it important? And what key components make up a tarp tie? Finally, how do you choose the right logistic strap for securing building materials?

Kinedyne’s new Cargo Securement 101 Training Videos answer these questions and more while providing basic equipment information, usage tips, and general guidance on choosing the right tools for specific cargo hauling needs. The animated, two- to three-minute videos are the latest tools in the Kinedyne Cargo Securement Education Program. Kinedyne designed the video series to keep customers and others in the trucking industry updated on load securement regulations.


Kinedyne recognizes that there are many different types of cargo securement equipment. Because of this, it can be challenging for customers to know which is the best option and why. Therefore,  Cargo Securement 101 Training Videos cover logistic, ratchet, winch, and utility straps; winches; chain binders; logistic track, and more. Each video provides an overview of the equipment, what it’s used for as well as how it secures and protects cargo.

Kinedyne designed the videos to provide free virtual training for fleets, distributors, and their employees. The brand also designed the videos for owner operators and drivers when on-site training might not be available. The videos can be watched individually on demand or incorporated into a customer’s own training program and are available in English, Spanish, and coming soon in French.

“We believe it’s our responsibility to offer tools to help educate and train those in the industry about the importance of cargo securement products,” says Roger Perlstein, vice president – sales and marketing, Kinedyne. “Kinedyne offers free courses and videos like these in an effort to promote safety within the transportation industry and for the public. It’s part of our commitment to the highest levels of quality and service.”

The Kinedyne Education Series also includes free instruction, webinars, and other training as a public safety contribution to the industry.
