Each vessel can ship a couple thousand vehicles at any one time safely due to how professional they are loaded on board. Each vehicle is secured using ratchet straps to the front and back of each vehicle. The larger the vehicle means more straps are used to keep the vehicle from moving freely on board the ship. Safety is taken very seriously, so all straps are checked daily to ensure that none have worked loose whilst in transit to India.
