Load general freight

The purpose of the learning credited in this unit standard is to ensure that learners are able to safely load, secure and off- load freight carried on vehicles. Credited learners can adhere to given time frames and specified requirements for specific types of freight. Improved general freight loading prevents accidents where vehicles lose loads, and ensures that loads and persons are not damaged or injured. If the condition of loads is preserved, customer service and profitability are improved.
