Inflatable Truck Dunnage FAQ

Dunnage Air Bags For Truck Shipping - Frequently Asked Questions

What are Dunnage Air Bags?

Air inflated dunnage bags are used to restrain movement of cargo loads in trucks and trailers. They fill voids, brace loads, absorb vibrations, and protect cargo from in-transit damage, better than any other form of load-bracing also known as dunnage.

Dunnage air bag restraints are constructed using multiple layers (2, 4, 6, or 8 plys) of paper or varying gauges of polywoven material and designed with an inflatable internal polyethylene bladder. Dunnage bags are used frequently because they allow for flexible and simple blocking and bracing to restrain movement of cargo loads.

Supplied based on multiple levels conforming to international shipping standards, inflatable air bags are manufactured and sold in 5 different configuration levels (L1, L2, L3, L4, and L5), each designed to withstand different force loads in transit. L1 or Level One is considered appropriate for truck trailer shipping. Higher level air bags may also be used to restrain truckload shipments up to 40,000 pounds.

What type of Dunnage Air Bag is recommended for truck shipment?

LEVEL 1 Polywoven or 2-ply paper air bags.

What are the most common causes of freight damage?

There are 2 extremely common causes of freight damage during shipment by truck. The first is related to freight falling forward or backward due to open areas within a poorly loaded trailer. The second commonly seen situation is damage related to double and triple decked skids bouncing in transit. The third common damage concern is related to lateral or side-to-side movement during turns made by a truck in transit.

What are the effects of shifting loads and damaged freight?

Customers are unhappy. Valuable time is wasted putting the damaged freight back together at destination terminals. The necessity for "Re's" (Recouping, Restacking, Re-banding, Re-shrink-wrapping, and Re-working the load) adversely affect dock production and strain customer relations.

How has cargo been braced in the past?

Loads have been braced using a combination of empty pallets, 2 x 4's, and empty cardboard cartons. Shipments which included fragile cargo as part of the overall load necessitated stair-stepping standard freight back-to or away-from the fragile freight.

What are some benefits of bracing loads in trucks using Litco’s dunnage air bags?

The trucking industry is in an ever-changing fight for survival. Fuel costs and taxes continue to climb, insurance premiums soar, wage increases and discounts continue to consume your bottom line. Air bag use will have the biggest impact on the load factor (a carrier's largest single expense). Dunnage air bags represent a less expensive means of blocking and bracing than the use of lumber and nails or expensive rubber air bags. This type of operational improvement helps directly maintain and improve profit margins.

How is this accomplished?

Proper use of air bags as dunnage permits better space utilization, better product protection and can eliminate stair-stepping of cargo. Using air bags to cushion fragile freight, these items can be loaded anywhere in the trailer. Skids can be double or triple-decked, air-bagged either in front of or behind (or both) the fragile freight to achieve maximum cube utilization. Since the use of Air Bags will permit normal loading behind the fragile freight, eliminating the need for stair-stepping improves the load factor and reduces line-haul or transportation costs. And now, faster filling inflation systems using the latest technology and venturi-style inflator tools have reduced inflation times of air bags by as much as 50% or more.

Can Dunnage Bags be damaged during filling?

Dunnage Bags can burst with over-inflation. Each bag has a label located near the valve with recommended pressure. If inflation check points are followed, it will eliminate these problems.

Why use Litco Dunnage Air Bags instead of our competitor’s product?

The dunnage air bag market has changed quite a bit in the last few years. LITCO has a team of professionals who stay on top of the changes and make adjustments to provide the best options for you, our customer.

When protecting your valuable products during transportation, you can count on LITCO International, Inc. and the people who serve you to get your products safely to their destination, keeping you competitive in your industry through satisfying your customers as they receive undamaged product from you.

Is a re-usable bag available?

Yes. More and more companies are switching to reusable valve air bags, even if they can't always recover and reuse the bags. To keep in step with eco-friendly practices, most of LITCO's dunnage air bags come with a reusable valve at no additional cost to you, and soon 100% of our air bags will be reusable.
