Cargo Tracking sometimes referred to as L-Track or aircraft tracking is commonly used in 4x4s, particularly expedition vehicles where it is extremely effective as a flexible load containment system. It is also used within the Mercedes Van range in its Vito & Viano models.
Cargo Tracking can also be used to good effect on roof-racks, within the loadbed of pick-up trucks, in vans, trailer beds or simply anywhere you need your cargo to stay secure.
The flexibility of the Cargo Tracking system allows you to slide your tie downs and accessory fixings along the length of the Cargo Tracking thereby ensuring any fixing or lashing point is always exactly where you need them. The Quick-Release feature of the tie downs means they can be fitted in seconds and removed completely when not in use. We offer two different types of Cargo Tracking, Surface Mount Track or Slimline Track.
Surface Mount Cargo Tracking
42mm (width) x 13.5mm (depth)
Surface Mount Cargo tracking is supplied pre-drilled with M8 fixing holes. There are ten fixing holes per 1m length. Hole centres are at 101.6mm. We can supply M8x35mm fixings.
Our Surface Mount cargo tracking and seating accessories are tested and fully approved for seat fixtures.
A 1000mm track length will fit the loadbed of a Defender 90.
Slimline Cargo Tracking
34.5mm (width) x 9.5mm (depth)
Slimline Cargo tracking is supplied drilled. There are ten fixing holes per 1m length. Hole centres are at 100mm. We can supply M6x35mm fixings.
The narrower profile of the Slimline tracking makes it ideal for recessing into a floor or mounting above and below the Defender Station Wagon Windows. This is a popular method of creating a mounting platform for transporting sand ladders, jerry can holders or waffle boards.
The slimline 1400mm lengths of tracking will fit both 90 & 110 Station Wagon body panels above and below the side windows. Please note. The 1400mm track length will need reducing slightly in order to fit the shorter 110SW body panel. Because of the random nature of window fitment and the massive range of aftermarket windows available, please ensure you have sufficient clearance to fit the tracking between the top of your window frame and the roofline before ordering. You will need a minimum of 34.5mm clearance.
We sell the surface mount track in lengths of 1000mm and the slimline in lengths of 1000mm or 1400mm.
If you have a specific application or a project in mind we can supply cut-to-length cargo tracking. Please email for details. Please note that due to shipping companies length restrictions, the maximum continuous length of Cargo Tracking we can supply is 2.5m. There may be an extra 'oversize' carriage charge for longer lengths of track.
We know that when you shop online you want your order as soon as possible. Choose DHL shipping in the checkout and order before 2pm then you’ll get your stuff the next working day.
On smaller items we also offer a 2nd Class postage service. This normally takes 2-3 working days to show up at your door. If you’re in a rush go for the DHL option for a fully tracked service.
Big Stuff! Unfortunately, our Side Panels, Bulkhead Bars and longer lengths of Cargo Tracking are too big for DHL to handle. We generally use UPS or TNT but that’s on an ad-hoc basic so you need to order before 12 to get a next day service.
We charge the same rate to any UK address, which includes Highlands and Islands and Northern Ireland. We do this because we think its unfair to charge more just because you live remotely, lets be honest if we could, we’d live there too. In exchange please be patient if your parcel takes more than one day to arrive.
We use DHL to ship to all our European customers, this can range from a 1-5 working day service. The good news is most parcels arrive within 3 days of shipping. If you’re lucky enough to live in France, Germany or Belgium you might even get your parcel the next day.
Once you’ve ordered DHL will be in touch by email with tracking details. If you’ve chosen Royal Mail shipping then you should receive your parcel in around 10 working days.
VAT Numbers: If you have a VAT number please contact us before you check out.
Please Note: If you live in The Alps or somewhere equally beautiful and hard to get to, we might have to use DPD or TNT to deliver. They should be just as quick.
USA & Canada Shipping
American & Canadian customers can expect a 2-3 working day service with DHL, depending on whether your East or West Coast. DHL will be in touch via email with all the info you need once you’ve placed your order.
Rest of the World Shipping
The good news is we ship to pretty much everywhere (we don’t ship to Russia, sorry!).
The best service to choose is DHL, most parcels are delivered within 4 working days. This service is fully tracked and DHL will email you with all the details as soon as they’ve collected your ‘stuff’
If your parcel is light enough, you’ll be offered Royal Mail shipping in the checkout process. This will be delivered locally by your nearest post office. We’ve found that some countries have better postal systems than others. It can take up to 20 working days for post to arrive, so if you are in a rush please choose DHL in the checkout.
