Securing loads (applies to all routes)

The vehicle must have lashing mountings for securing to the ship. The freight must be sufficiently well lashed and secured to withstand the movements which may occur during transport by sea. The haulier/driver is responsible for ensuring that the load is properly lashed and secured to his own vehicle. The chief officer has the final say concerning loads/lashings, or whether the load should be refused. No liquids must drip from the vehicles.

Oil burners etc. (applies to all routes)

Due to air pollution and safety reasons, it is not permitted to have oil burners, diesel engines etc. running on the vehicle deck during the crossing.
