The official New Zealand truck loading code

Published: 2010

Code of practice for the safety of loads on heavy vehicles.

The truck loading code sets out a code of practice for the safety of loads on heavy vehicles. It has been prepared to provide owners, drivers, operators and loading staff with guidance in the basic safety principles that must be followed generally, and in particular the precautions that must be taken to ensure the safe carriage of a number of the more common types of load, including containers, pallets, construction equipment, logs and sawn timber.

Note: The truck loading code is now included in the official New Zealand road code for heavy vehicle drivers.
