In today’s logistics and distribution environment risk mitigation is a headache for any management team, it seems as if nothing is safe and we have to go the extra mile to make sure our cargo and assets are secure. Solutions are aplenty, from advanced locking systems and sensory mechanics to live vehicle tracking and stolen vehicle recover, yes these are all solutions which contribute to mitigating risk but what about internal risks? How do you control that? By going back to the basics….
This is where tamper evident security seals make their entrance. It makes it easy to track and monitor your cargo and products through tamper evident mechanisms, barcoding and serialization for record keeping and best of all its AFFORDABLE. Last year alone there was an estimated $250 million worth of cargo thefts reported. True, not all these cases could have been prevented with security seals, however using the right seals in the right places would no doubt play a role in preventing internal theft, theft by third parties and play a major role in deterrence.
Tamper evident seals are used in a wide variety of industries such as pharmaceuticals, hospitality, oil & gas, banks, logistics & warehousing, distribution, cash in transit and many more. The logistics and distribution process requires that cargo and consignments be moved from one place to another either one way trips or trips with numerous stops en route to the final destination and each stop comes with its own set of risks. This is where security / tamper evident seals are a necessity. Most companies require their employees to check the trucks with each delivery and reseal them as soon as they are finished. This helps them keep track of at which point anything could have happened. It also allows them to hold specific people responsible (deterrence) as they know who had access to the cargo at what stage during transit.
The seals can also be used to track and store auditable data using fibre laser engraving technology which allows for barcodes, serial numbers, customer names and logos to be engraved
