KLLM Transport Services, a Jackson MS-based temperature-controlled truckload carrier, is implementing a new level of shipper security by installing Power In-Lock internal locking systems on its fleet of trailers.

The Power In-Lock system, a remotely controlled deadbolt-style lock developed by Q Products & Services, serves as an additional level of protection against cargo thieves.  KLLM is able to provide shippers with documented proof their product was not compromised during transit. The carrier has worked with Q Products and Services for more than a year to ensure the Power In-Lock system is effective and reliable.

“This locking mechanism will offer our customers an even higher measure of security against theft, tampering, or any event that may pose a threat to the integrity of the product,” said Jim Richards, KLLM president and chief executive officer. “Our doors are locked electronically from our Jackson headquarters as soon as the trailer is loaded, and the trailer is locked from the inside, totally out of sight and out of reach of thieves. Once the lock is activated, the door cannot be opened until the trailer reaches its destination, and it can only be opened by KLLM Operations personnel. Plus, it also provides a minute-by-minute record of all lock and door activity, so shippers know that no one has tampered with their cargo.

KLLM has been listening to the security needs of our industry,” he said, “and we are proud to bring our customers and their quality assurance teams a solution that will virtually guarantee their product is not compromised by an outside source while under our control.”

Richards said KLLM remains at the forefront of innovations concerning food safety and is already compliant with Food Safety Modernization Act standards that were enacted in April 2016.

“The motto for the Power In-Lock system is ‘turn your trailer into a safe,’ and that’s exactly the kind of security we like to give our customers,” he said.
