Abstract This paper pointed out the risks resulting from both improper cargo securing and trailer lashings material properties. Paper presents method used for strap testing of under different environmental conditions. Obtained results confirm initial authors assumption that there is a relationship between the humidity and straps mechanical and rheological properties. Effects of the work will be used to build a numerical model and to simulate the behaviour of straps under different climatic, road and utility conditions.
