How the concrete mats and rolls are loaded and unloaded

Concrete Mats are supplied in rolls. For transport the rolls are stacked pyramid style on the bed of a truck. See the diagrams as reference as to how the loads are packed onto trucks.

The stack and arrangement is dependent on the truck bed, sizes and how it is loaded and offloaded. These are simply examples of how the rolls can be carried on a truck. Note, the final load is the responsibility and decision of the contractor driver how his load is packed – these are examples of how they rolls are loaded only.
