Secure your Rail Cargo!!
Many organisations have opted to use Rail transport as their main source of goods delivery, may it be for Aviation Industry, Steel Industry, Pharmaceuticals, or even Retail. One thing they all have in common is the issues they face during the transit of their good from one location to another. Many believe that it is harder for their goods to be stolen from a Rail cart than it is to be stolen from the back of a trailer. However this is not the case with many incidents increasing of goods being stolen from moving trains. We know it sounds something out of a movie, maybe Fast & Furious style thefts. Maybe not that much action, however the point is goods do get stolen and companies are losing thousands of pounds worth of goods.
Furthermore now it’s coming up to the Christmas period many companies are gearing up to get their products to the shelves as soon as possible, or maybe fill up their warehouse beforehand to ensure they have enough stock. In any case they will have to use some sort of transport may it be Rail, Sea, or Land.
In our previous blogs we have provided our customers with information on transport through Land and Sea, this time we would like to inform our customers about the security of Rail Transport.
As some of you may know Mega Fortris have been securing Cargo for many years now, providing the best transport solutions from Security Seals to Load securing through the help of their sister company Fortris Load Secure (Also a part of Mega Fortris Group). This week we will list a number of seals which we believe will provide our customers with the highest level of security for their Cargo being transported through Rail.
The following are seals which we would recommend companies using Rail Transport to secure your goods:
