All shipments tendered to TDIS must be properly blocked & braced

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Please note TDIS requires all shipments to be loaded in accordance with the standards set forth in the Association of American Railroad (AAR) Intermodal Loading Guide for Products in Closed Trailers and Containers. It is the responsibility of those tendering shipments to ensure proper blocking & bracing techniques are used to secure every load. TDIS will not be held liable for damages, refusals or claims resulting from improper loading. In an effort to ensure compliance, TDIS can arrange to have representatives sent to the shipper's location to demonstrate proper loading, blocking and bracing techniques. Please contact tdisclaims@ns-direct.com to coordinate.
