See explanation below


Explanation:
You ask for an explanation. Vehicles can carry static electricity charges. If the static electricity discharges of its own accord it creates a spark, which can be dangerous if flammable materials are present during unloading of the vehicle. Therefore the electricity is removed in a controlled way by means of an earth connection. It is literally allowed to run into the earth via a cable.

Hpe this helps.

Mike.
