The cost of the LASSTEC Twistlock Load Sensing System is negligible compared to the costs of an accident. Moreover, the system can help prevent accidents caused by overweight containers, incorrectly locked twistlocks or unsafe container handling conditions. The system is located on the very equipment where most accidents happen during container handling operations.

It is common knowledge that container weights are frequently understated. Stowage plans are based on the container weights as indicated on the manifest. Unfortunately, if the weights are understated, severe accidents can happen.

Eccentrically loaded containers cause the handling equipment to become unsafe or unstable to operate or the equipment to fail prematurely.

Accident reduction, prolonged equipment life and increased operational profits for the ports are the benefits of the LASSTEC Twistlock Load Sensing System.
