In response to the need for increased security on intermodal logistics shipments across Europe, security seals specialist, the TydenBrooks Security Products Group, now offers a dual solution for sealing shipping containers and trucks.
Meeting ISO 17712 and C-TPAT for security compliance, the Alum-a-Loc from Tydenbrooks is a heavy duty cargo security cable seal made of corrosion resistant aluminium which builds in advanced security features and requires professional strength cable cutters for removal.
The cable is 3/16" – 4.8mm diameter and is non-preformed, which means it springs open on cutting. This feature prevents the cable from being cut and reinserted in the body of the seal.
It is ideal for use on the back of trucks or shipping containers as its length as required, but typically between 1200mm and 1800mm, enables it to be wound through the upright locking bars, linking them together with a serialised lock body which can be bar coded and/or colour coded. For extra security this can be combined with one of the range HS bolt security seals.
Both seals are aimed at preventing the doors from being opened, and show immediate tamper evidence. If sold as a package to customers, they can be marked with the same sequential number for easy checking and identification, and supplied as a packed kit.
Commenting Nic Dancey, Director of Sales & Marketing EMEA, says: "The use of a tracking and identification system like this provides customers in shipping and intermodal logistics with a reliable and scalable tracking and security service which can help to reduce costs, minimise delays and improve efficiencies. This is particularly important in today’s marketplace where growing volumes of freight and an increasing emphasis on security can strain the efficiency of freight transportation, particularly at gateways and along major transportation corridors."
