Keeping trailers and cargo safe and secure is a main priority for anyone in the logistics industry. Although the rate of incidents has gone down over the past few years, any type of incident can be extremely costly. This includes theft, tampering, or any mechanical failure. Here are 4 ways that you can keep trailers secure with bolt seals:
- Stay compliant with ISO standards. American Casting & Manufacturing makes seals that are certified to meet the high security standards of ISO-17712. That means it has been tested and meets certain standards for pulling, bending, and crushing. Since not all seals are created equally, it's important to invest in seals that are certified to be the strongest and most difficult to break.
- Properly document all seals. It's important to keep accurate documents of your bolt seals and their uses. That way, all personnel knows what types of seals to use in what situations. Further, it gives your organization a properly-documented log of the use of all seals.
- Train all personnel on the proper use of security seals. Bolt seals are not as effective if they're not being used properly.

This includes training on different types of bolt seals, their application, the procedure for documenting their use, and the procedure for when damage does occur.
