As cargo theft spikes, J. J. Keller offers free security seal tips

June 10, 2024
“Preventing Theft and Tampering With Security Seals” outlines free tips for choosing the right seal for various types of cargo.

J. J. Keller & Associates is offering a free resource that outlines security seal best practices and tips for choosing the proper seal for various types of cargo.

Cargo theft rose 57% from 2022 to 2023, representing nearly $130 million in stolen goods, according to CargoNet. One common way many transporters use to deter theft and tampering is the use of security seals. In response to this concerning rise in theft, J.J. Keller released “Preventing Theft and Tampering With Security Seals.”

Security seals deter potential thieves by visibly indicating if a trailer or container has been tampered with. They are available in various strengths and with different tamper-evident features.

“By implementing security seals and adhering to stringent security protocols, trucking companies can enhance trust among clients, mitigate risks, and uphold industry standards,” said Josh Lovan, industry business advisor at J. J. Keller & Associates. “Investing in security seals not only protects assets but also fosters a secure and resilient transportation infrastructure essential for commerce.”

  • Anti-rotation locking design for improved security
  • Durable printing for improved readability and barcode scanning
  • One-piece design for easier recycling
  • Two-point connection between the seals at the head and tail to keep them together in mattes of 10 when shipping and when removing from the shipping carton
