When we talk about mandatory safety elements we refer to: working seat belts, portable beacons, fire extinguishers, lights, maximum speed circle on the back of the vehicle, reflective perimeter bands, company name, address and telephone number, tare and maximum load on the sides of the truck.

We recommend non-perishable packaged foodstuffs so that they last over time. Among these, it is essential to consume foods that provide energy, so we recommend nuts (they provide satiety and energy, in addition to being easy to eat), cereal bars, granola or even cans of legumes.

Having one of them is of great importance to be able to solve technical issues of the vehicle that are easy to “fix”, such as changing a flat tire. In addition, the truck driver should carry a flashlight to be able to see objects during the night if required.
