Working Load Limit (WLL)is defined as:
  • The depression formed between two cylindrical articles when they are laid with their eyes horizontal and parallel against each other.
  • The summation of the working load limits or restraining capacity of all devices used to secure an article on a vehicle.
  • The maximum load that may be applied to a component of a cargo securement system during normal service, usually assigned by the manufacturer of the component.
  • A combination of securing devices which form an assembly that attaches cargo to, or restrains cargo on, a vehicle or trailer, and is attached to anchor point(s).

    A securement system must be capable of resisting how much lateral (side-to-side) force, at minimum?
    • 100% of the cargo weight
    • 50% of the cargo weight
    • 80% of the cargo weight
    • 20% of the cargo weight

    From The CDL Manual

    • The forward force (80% of the cargo weight) represents braking while driving straight ahead.
    • The rearward force (50% of the cargo weight) represents vehicle acceleration or braking in reverse.
    • The side-to-side or lateral force (50% of the cargo weight) represents traveling on a curve, ramp or changing lanes.
    • The vertical force (20% of the cargo weight)) represents cargo vibration during transport. This requirement is satisfied when the cargo is "Fully Contained"

    "Fully Contained" means:
    • Cargo is placed against a vehicle structure of adequate strength or other cargo so that it cannot shift or tip.
    • A vehicle especially built and fitted with locking devices for the transport of intermodal containers.
    • A structure, device, or another substantial article placed against or around an article to prevent horizontal movement of the article.
    • A combination of securing devices which form an assembly that attaches cargo to, or restrains cargo on, a vehicle or trailer, and is attached to anchor point(s).
