Explanation:
Yes, more or less.

From læsse, to load
at læsse om -> omlæsning.

Omladning would be the same thing.
The person writing the text was probably thinking of the noun læs = load, which is usually associated with road transport or something with wheels.
It would have to be salvaged from the accident site and loaded on to another vehicle.

I associate ladning more with ships, although I can see from the dictionary that it could also be used of vehicles.
