When is a Security Seal Not a Security Seal?
We start this blog with a question which may be of significance in the current market of Loss Prevention and in fact any industry which use various forms of transportation for their goods. Looking into the recent trend many organisations look to save as much as possible many opting to do this within their operational costs. However do we realise the consequences of this?
We’re referring more to the security costs of cargo transportation. Though we agree it is essential in to cut down costs wherever possible, we may be putting ourselves at risk when doing so. When securing our Cargo in transit many organisations opt for a cheap seal which is perfectly fine if in return the security seals they were placing on their Trailer or Containers were of high quality. However this is not the case in most of the companies. Many businesses are using cheap seals which are of low quality.
The consequences of this can have a big impact on the business. This is where the question “When is a Security Seal NOT a Security Seal?” comes into focus. While we believe our cargo is safe when placing these cheap quality seals on our trailers, is it actually reliable? Remember low cost seals come at a price which is “low quality” seals these will break easily due to the cheap materials used to build these seals. Organisations like ourselves take pride in the quality of our seals as we believe if the seal can be broken with a simple tug it doesn’t really count as a security seal.
