Cargo Rail sometimes referred to as Cargo Track, L-Track, Seat Track, Lashing Rail or Aircraft Tracking is an industry standard aluminium tracking system. It is commonly used in 4x4 expedition vehicles where it is extremely effective as a flexible load containment system or as a mounting platform for accessories.
Cargo Rail has also grown in popularity with 'Van-Life' enthusiasts and camper-van converters.
It is also used as an OEM fitment within the ‘garage’ area of many motorhomes as well as the Mercedes Van range and VW Grand California models based on the VW Crafter.
Cargo Rail can also be used to good effect on roof-racks, within the load-bed of pick-up trucks, the back of vans, trailer beds or anywhere you need your cargo to stay secure.
The flexibility of the Cargo Rail system allows you to slide tie-downs and accessory fixings along the length of the Cargo Rail thereby ensuring your fixing or lashing points are always exactly where you need them. The Quick-Release nature of many of the accessories means they can be fitted in seconds and removed completely when not in use.
We offer both the Curved Profile Rail or Slimline Cargo Rail. All of the accessories we sell will fit into either style of rail. Slimline Cargo Rails is available drilled or undrilled. The curved profile rail is only available undrilled.
Curved Profile Cargo Rail
42mm width x 9.5mm depth (see Resources section below for a technical drawing).
The Curved Profile Cargo Rail provide a more aesthetically pleasing profile that is less susceptible to snagging when fitted into a floor space.Sold in lengths of 970mm (end caps sold separately).
Slimline Profile Cargo Tracking
Slimline Cargo Track is available both in a drilled version and undrilled version. Note the profile of each rail differs slightly. See diagram below.
Undrilled Slimline Rail
34mm width x 8.5mm depth (see Resources section below for a technical drawing).
Drilled Slimline Rail
34mm width x 9.6mm depth (see Resources section below for technical drawing)
Both drilled and undrilled rail is sold in lengths of 970mm or 1400mm to suit the side of a Defender 110 Station Wagon.
The narrower profile of the Slimline Cargo Rail makes it ideal for 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 etc on the side of your vehicle.If you opt for the un-drilled version but are unsure about drilling your own fixing holes, we also stock the Relleum Drill Centre Tool which ensures any fixing hole is always drilled centrally within the rail.
Both drilled and undrilled cargo track are compatible with our slimline end caps, which can be found here.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. If you have a specific application or a project in mind we can supply cut-to-length cargo tracking so you're only paying for what you need. 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. If you are outside of the UK and require tracking longer than 97cm please contact us for a quote.

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 Fed-Ex 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.
