"We're able to use the Cargo Securement Handbook in two different ways. We share them with new employees in combination with our own company-specific materials, and also as part of refresher training to help maintain awareness of important practices.

My new and veteran employees both benefit from the information in the handbooks.

Most of the drivers we hire are experienced, and the handbook re-emphasizes the skills that help keep them on top of their game and avoid becoming complacent."
