With regards to cargo loaded within and on units, this will once again be accepted as long as it is loaded in line with general terms of the modalities and taking into account the following:
personal effects /spare parts inside cars, small vans, big vans and truck/trailers provided :
– they can be visually inspected (meaning that loading compartment must be accessible )
– inspection can be done in safe manner
