The latest innovation from world leading security seal manufacturers TydenBrooks – the GlobalTrak Krateus eBolt – guarantees the best of both worlds for logistics operators in combating the recent increase in thefts from moving trucks across Europe: the strength and installation simplicity of the standard bolt seal combined with totally flexible electronic cargo tracking – security plus condition monitoring and real-time exception alerts.
A global problem which appears to be gaining in frequency on European roads, the highly dangerous criminal activity of stealing goods from trucks as they travel appears to be the result of the security industry’s success in eliminating other more accessible weak points in the supply chain. The widespread introduction of secured parking areas has significantly reduced theft and whilst some criminals are now targeting goods actually in transit, this opportunity is also about to be closed with the ability to not only secure but track and monitor breaches should they occur, and take immediate action.
TydenBrooks’ GlobalTrak Krateus is a reusable, C-TPAT/ISO Standard 17712 compliant, electronic barrier seal featuring enhanced security and visibility. As simple to install as a standard physical bolt seal, Krateus is designed to provide the latest cargo tracking technology combined with security and condition monitoring which enables asset positioning through GSM cell, ZigBee and assisted GPS. Exception alerts can be sent by email/SMS and trip reports, tailored to suit each business’ immediate response protocol.
Comments Nic Dancey, TydenBrooks General Manager EMEA: "Staying one step ahead of the criminal mind is a continuous challenge and we are keen to help European freight transporters mitigate their daily risks with the introduction of the Krateus eBolt. The benefits to all business
stakeholders, from security and logistics through to risk management, quality control, merchandising and financial management, are clear to see, along with an excellent and speedy ROI."
The TydenBrooks GlobalTrak Krateus eBolt is available worldwide for an increasingly diverse range of applications.
