Our Values

The following values are important to us: Innovation, quality, mutual respect for people and the environment, long-term partnerships, fair prices and trust.

ETAP provides worldclass dunnage bag solutions. ETAP dunnage bags protect cargo in the most cost efficient way.


The accelerations acting on a ship in a seaway result from a combination of longitudinal, vertical and predominantly transverse movements. Our Dunnage Bags prevents these movements and secures your cargo.


Goods transported in trucks are subject to significant front-to-back forces due to acceleration and braking, and less severe side-to-side forces due to cornering. The greatest possible stress usually occurs during braking decelerations. Etap Dunnage Bags prevent that these movements get devolved. They reliably secure the cargo.


Vessel shipments refer to the loading of goods into the hull of an ocean-going vessel. In ship transports, the loaded goods are subjected to extreme forces in all directions. Etap Dunnage Bags guarantee a safe transport.


When trains are used for transport, shunting impacts when trains are being assembled, can sometimes result in heavy forces. Depending on the type of wagon, the resulting forces can be up to 4 times the weight of the wagon. Particular attention must therefore be paid to force-locking stowage with the aid of Dunnage Bags, especially when transporting containers.
