What is the purpose of this guide?

This guide is designed to inform Toll’s customers and clients about the rollover risk associated with freight transported on the road within shipping containers, and how that risk may be managed. This guide explains:

  • the specific hazards and risks associated with containerised loads;
  • how parties in the supply chain can control, eliminate or minimise the risk of rollovers;
  • which parties are likely to hold legal obligations under Chain of Responsibility laws; and
  • where further information and resources can be found.

This guide focuses primarily on road transport, however many of the risk controls outlined in this guide are also good practice for other transport modes. It is recommended that you seek further advice if your transport task is multi-modal. The information in this guide is general in nature and should not be used as a substitute for legal advice.
