As a driver, covering your load is top priority. Whether you're hauling lumbar, steel, or machinery, appropriate coverage is necessary to keep your cargo safe during transportation. A wide variety of tarps are available and it's imperative that you choose the appropriate size and material for your situation. It's also a good idea to choose a rolling, or sliding tarp over a traditional one. A rolling tarp system is powered by an electric motor, making it a more efficient solution.
