Behind the Wheel

Powerful and reliable trucks only work as good as their drivers. Whether looking for the information how to secure the load or customising your truck with Mercedes-Benz Genuine Accessories, this driver’s section helps you to become an even better symbiosis with your truck.
Adhere to the load-bearing capacity of your vehicle and secure the load.

Adhere to the load-bearing capacity of your vehicle and secure the load.

When loading the vehicle, distribute the vehicle's load evenly and ensure that the axles are not being stressed beyond their load-bearing capacity. If you are only partially loading the vehicle, the drive axles should bear the load where possible, so that the driving force can be transferred to the road without tire slip (which would cause excessive tire wear) and to improve safety, particularly when braking.

Lighter goods should be placed on top, heavier at the bottom. Do not forget when loading to load according to planned unloading sequence. There should be no unnecessary space between individual load units to avoid any movement in cargo area.

Lashes should be fixed in optimized angles, in order to achieve stability of cargo. All securing equipment and materials should be in good conditions without any visible defects. At the end check that the securing arrangements do not damage the load.

While driving.

While driving.

During the transport of any kind of goods, periodically check the load securing arrangements. Always check the load, if emergency braking or another abnormal situation occurs during the journey. Whenever, the load is unloaded or redistributed in cargo area, adapt and recheck the load securing arrangements. Most importantly, drive smoothly and predict traffic situation and behaviour of others to avoid any sudden change of direction or heavy breaking.
