    Is this OK or should I have 4 on each, with 2 at the front and 2 at the back of each stack? Something different? First flatbed load.

    its fine, you probably could have got away with 2 straps each just looking at it

    Each stack is about 12-14' long, 15k lbs by the way.

    Looks good to me, you can X strap the front for a little added security like I did here...

    No, but I try and X-chain/X-strap as much as possible. Never hurts...

    I was with TMC in the past though... Just didn't start with them ;)

    You
    You’re legal with 3 on the length, but I probably would have put one ahead and one behind the blocks on the ends of the stack. Going all steel hauler on the front stack like @JonJon78 did with his is a good idea too. Probably overkill most of the time, but the one time it isn’t you’ll appreciate those two being there.

    you can over secure all you want, but
    he only needs 2 tiedowns legally. one tiedown for every ten foot of length.
