Dutch/German truck inspections 1999 [German version]

On 22nd-23rd April 1999, a truck inspection operation was carried out on the A30 highway at the former border crossing into the Netherlands. The operation involved 142 Dutch and German officials, the Federal Labor Court, customs authorities, Federal Labor Department and eleven load securing experts from transport insurers within GDV. Load securing has become a highly significant issue since the first joint inspection with the local authorities.

At the beginning of this major inspection, the Interior Minister of Lower Saxony and the German and Dutch police chiefs emphasized the great importance of load securing and such inspections.

Given the results (shortcomings in over 80% of cases), the greater importance attached to this issue by the authorities can only be considered a partial success for the work of transport insurers‘ loss prevention committee within GDV.
