Cordstrap partners with chemical manufacturers, globally to ship hazardous and non-hazardous goods via ship, road and rail. Our Cargo Protection Engineers anticipate danger throughout the shipping journey and mitigate risk at every step. Our protection engineering approach analyzes the customers’ needs across their load securing and transportation operations.

We create a tailored loading plan or recommend a standardized plan. The loading plan delivers the optimum combination of products such as dunnage bags, lashing, strapping, buckles, tensioning tools and desiccants. We also work closely with customers to provide training that ensures consistency across loads and teams.
