Trucks – be they hard body vehicles, taut-liners or flat beds are generally a challenge to seal effectively yet they move your cargo all over the country & beyond!

A lock on a vehicle door, to secure a load is ineffective as this can be accessed and re-locked without any indication of access or closure.

Sealing a truck is imperative if you want any form of control over your load and to demystify the point of liability.

Questions an ICS consultant would typically ask in helping you decide on a sealing solution…

1. What type of vehicle requires sealing?
2. Is there an aperture to accommodate a sealing device?
3. Are you protecting the load from an external threat or as an internal control measure?
4. Do you require an indicative or a barrier seal? (Link) Blog 2
5. How easily must the seal be removed under authorised conditions?
6. What are the operational & logistical considerations in your supply chain?
7. Does the vehicle do single or multiple drops?
8. What is the risk exposure of the cargo or the route?
9. Is bar-coding a requirement?
10. How many vehicles in the fleet?
11. Are they owned or rented?
12. Is a re-usable, electronic solution a consideration?

ICS supply a range of 18 sealing solutions for truck applications. Disposable seals can be used in conjunction with a lock but the role of the seal is critical – it highlights that security has been breached.

A worthy consultation will digest the customer responses and will recommend either a plastic indicative seal for practical, lower level security requirements,
