The paper deals with a comparison of shocks (values of acceleration coefficients and inertial forces) of two types of vehicles (T-810 and T-815 MK IV) during transport experiments on a motorway. The measurement was performed using an OM-CP-ULTRASHOCK-5 three-axial accelerometer with a datalogger and calibration certificate. The goal of the paper is to accept or reject a hypothesis of the existence of a statistically significant difference between the values of the acceleration coefficients generated by the two vehicles. The statistical analysis of the measured data was done with use of two parameters. The results of the analysis show statistically significant differences between the examined vehicles. Based on the performed statistical analysis, the effect on cargo securing is demonstrated.
