The holiday season is upon us, which means spending quality time with family and friends, cooking and enjoying different holiday foods, and of course, coming up with holiday gift ideas for your friends, coworkers, and family members.
So, we at U.S. Cargo Control compiled a list of holiday gift ideas to give to your loved ones this year. From practical items, to products on sale, and even our newest additions to our product lines in 2022, we selected some of our favorites for you to choose from.

Our multi-purpose moving blankets and moving pads are the perfect cargo control gifts to give for the holidays. Moving blankets wrap around items and protect them from getting any scuffs, scrapes, marks, or other damage during the moving process. However, these blankets have many other uses beyond moving that people can use them for.
We offer a wide variety of moving blankets, including:
- Supreme Blankets
- Pro Moving Blankets
- Performance Blankets
- Mega Movers
- Preferred Moving Blankets
- Multi Mover Blankets
- Econo Deluxe
- Econo Mover
- Econo Saver
- & More!

Ratchet straps are a must-have cargo control item for anyone who has a truck, trailer, or any vehicle for that matter. Useful for almost any tie down application, these straps come in a wide variety of lengths, widths, and end fittings. The polyester webbing that make up these straps also holds well against strong tie down forces to keep your cargo contained and secured.
Each of these different varieties suits your specific tie down needs. If you have a flatbed truck to haul vehicles around, then choose our Car Tie Down Ratchet Straps for optimal securement. Or if you have a dump truck or other container vehicle, then we recommend using a Container Roll Off Strap to keep your cargo in order. No matter the vehicle, ratchet straps are great holiday gift ideas.
If you don't know which ratchet strap you need, then check out our Comprehensive Guide to Ratchet Straps for better clarification.
3/8" x 9.62' Grade 70 Transport Chain w/ Clevis Grab Hooks
Another "must-have" is our Grade 70 transport chain, used when tying down cargo and other items to trailer. It can also be used for towing, logging, safety, and oil rigging. Heat-treated and strength-tested, this chain ensures safe usage for any application.
If Grade 70 chain isn't what you're looking for, then try out our other chain grades, including Grade 80, Grade 100, and Grade 120.

Cargo nets help secure things to your pickup truck bed, trailer, or enclosed van. Nice to have when hauling items back and forth, our cargo nets come in various lengths to fit various sizes of vehicles, including:
If you need a specific length or size of net, then we can create a custom cargo net with the right dimensions, materials, and end fittings. Just fill out a quote, and our product experts will reach out to you to follow up and confirm your order once the request is finished.
For items needing banded together, cinch straps make for easy work. Get these to hang items in your shop such as cable, wire, hoses, tools and more. You can also secure items together for easy storage. The Velcro material holds firmly together to prevent items from slipping away.
Besides cinch straps, you can also use ball bungees as an alternative to cinch straps. These bungee cords come in packages of 25, 50, and 100, and are useful for bundling, tying down, and even for unconventional methods!
L-Track systems are great gift ideas for the holiday that work to tie down cargo and other items to your trucks and trailers. Also called airline tracks, they are much narrower than an E-Track rail and use L-Track fittings for quick and simple attachment of ratchet straps, bungee cords, rope, and other tie downs.
There are different L-Track rails to choose from: standard, airline, angled, and recessed. So, you'll want to make sure you know which rail works best for your needs.
Load lock bars, also called cargo bars, work efficiently to keep cargo loads safe and prevent shifting or falling from happening. These are fantastic holiday gift ideas to give to your loved ones with enclosed vans or trailers. Our ratcheting cargo bars use tension force to lock into place within any style of trailer, no tracks or railings necessary.
For trailers with E-Track rails, shoring beams provide a better alternative. They attach and detach easily, can keep cargo in place similarly to regular cargo bars, and they have the added benefit of creating decks to add more space and cargo to your trailers.
5/8" Lashing Ring Weld On Forged Mounting Ring - 18,000 lbs.
Our heavy-duty D-rings are primarily used to create anchor points on trailers to complete tie down systems. Weld-on D-rings provide permanent tie down anchors that strap down heavy cargo and control it from moving out of place. The higher the diameter, the more weight it withstands (i.e. a 1/2" Weld-On D-Ring can hold up to 12,000 lbs., while a 3/4" Weld-On D-Ring holds up to 26,500 lbs.).
Dunnage bags were recently release as one of our new products, but we can't deny these would be great cargo contorl gifts for our truckers and other movers out there. These work at insulating cargo and preventing them from damaging each other during transit. Ideal for enclosed vans, trailers, and other containers, these new polypropylene bags are certified-AAR Level 1 recommended products. They are most certainly at the top of our list for holiday gift ideas this season.
Our dunnage bag offerings differ depending on the size and width of the bag to fit your container. Moreover, our different sizes will have different void sizes for your cargo:
It's especially nice to get some USCC apparel for Christmas! Take a look at some of our clothes and other accessories that would be a great gift to give!
