A special shout-out to loyal US Cargo Control customer, Marc. This is a great shot of his hot shot rig in action with US Cargo Control securement. Marc tells us he is double booked out of Miami and Fort Lauderdale (We’re a little jealous!). He’s hauling a 2,000 lbs. crankshaft and 10,000 lbs. flat roller — […]
US Cargo Control straps can be used to tie down some pretty precious cargo, but for professional race car driver Michele Abbate they are used to secure her most prized possession – her car. Racing has been a big part of Abbate’s life since she was a child. The Las Vegas native says she’s been following […]
It’s a niche part of the trucking industry that’s starting to boom: hotshot trucking. Hotshot trucking, or hot shot trucking, is a pretty simple concept. A heavy-duty pickup pulls a flatbed instead of using a traditional semi-trailer truck. Randy Eilerts has been in the hotshot game since October, but he’s been driving semis for years. He […]

This one has been one of the biggest we’ve seen lately. These chains have a capacity of 234,000 lbs. at 60 degrees, which means it would break at […]
We’re often asked if our moving blankets can be washed in a washing machine. Our “Best” category includes three machine-washable moving blankets. Their heavy-weight construction with woven polyester binding on all four sides allows them to be washed and re-used repeatedly. Keep in mind, even though these blankets are classified as washable, we do not recommend […]
Because ratchet straps are used for trailers, interior van trailers (logistic straps for L-track or E-track systems), moving trucks, and many other types of vehicles that haul bulky or heavy cargo, all of our ratchet straps are made of high quality, industrial grade webbing. Ratchet straps are typically made from a polyester fabric, which is […]
This guest post is courtesy of US Cargo Control customer Randy Fischer. A strap is a strap is a strap, right? That’s what I used to think. They’re all basically the same 4″ of poly-something-or-other webbing, with a hook or chain on one end. Usually colored yellow, for some strange reason. I always figured it […]
E-track shoring beams can serve a dual purpose. Not only can they secure cargo safely inside a trailer, they can also be used to provide additional storage space. E-track shoring beams attach to e-track rails that are installed inside your truck or trailer. Also called load bars, cargo bars, or load locks, the adjustable beams snap into […]
