While the big news around US Cargo Control lately has been the completion of our new warehouse addition
, a few other exciting things have been taking place over the last few months that we’d like to mention.
Web Sling & Tie Down Association
In October, US Cargo Control became members of the Web Sling & Tie Down Association
(WSTDA). The association is a non-profit organization that voluntarily publishes recommended standards, education and training materials, and warnings for businesses in the web sling and tie down industry.
Tim Guenther, CEO, and Tim Sanders, VP Warehouse Operations, attended the association’s fall meeting, which included presentations and committee meetings on the standards development process for operating manuals, labels, and other warning products.
Guenther says the development of USCC’s newest line of straps, BlackLine
, was eye-opening in terms of technical specifications, testing, etc., that go into to ensuring the safety and integrity of tie down products.
“The WSTDA is the gold standard when it comes to equipment testing, manufacturing procedures, and proper end use of web sling and tie down products,” said Guenther. “We’re pleased to be a part of such a great organization that has the best interests of both customers and suppliers in mind.”
The WSTDA includes 116 member organizations, including manufacturers and suppliers of synthetic web slings and tie downs, polyester round slings, synthetic webbing, fibers, thread and related companies throughout the United States and Canada.
US Cargo Control Trailer Set
Our marketing team has also been busy in recent months creating videos about USCC products, with plans in the works to create many more. In order to best show how to install and use the products, we created a mock trailer set-up. Check it out:
