Requirements for eyes lengthwise: stacked loads

Do not load paper rolls in an upper layer if another roll will fit in the layer beneath.

Form an upper layer by placing the paper rolls in the wells formed by the rolls beneath.

Eyes lengthwise: prevent forward and rearward movement

Secure a roll in an upper layer against forward and rearward movement:

Requirements for eyes crosswise

Prevent each roll from rolling or shifting forward and rearward by:

  • Contact with the vehicle structure.
  • Contact with other cargo.
  • Chocks, wedges, blocking or bracing of adequate size.
  • Tiedowns
  • Use side-to-side or front-to-back tiedowns to prevent side-to-side movement.

Note: Chocks, wedges, and blocking must be held in place by some additional means to friction so they may not become unfastened or loose while the vehicle is in transit.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
