Cargo seals have lengthy sections of appropriate protection practice. Its primary purpose is to reassure carriers, cargo owners, and government officials that the integrity of the shipment remains intact. Trailer and container sealing, to include continuous seal integrity, is an essential element of a secure supply chain.
One of the reasons security seals are so important is that, unlike locks, they cannot be resealed or replaced. If the numbered or coded seal has been broken, you will know that your security has been breached.
With a security seal control program that documents what is secured, when it is secured, and with what seal, shippers, and recipients know with 100% certainty that no container is being opened by anyone who is not authorized to open it. That’s why C-TPAT makes seals an integral part of its security protocol. It is critical that all partners in the supply chain have security procedures at the point of filling, procedures to inspect, properly seal, and maintain the integrity of shipping containers and trailers.
Keep your Cargo safe with certified seals
One way to shield your cargo in serious or touchy conditions is to take a layered approach. This means using more than one security tool at a time. C-TPAT certified seals a tamper-proof seal combined with safety tape, or even multiple seals can be a strong deterrent against theft. By selecting varieties that are proven to be destructive, it will become clear to parties at all checkpoints if there is a problem with the cargo.

C-TPAT network partners are increasingly trusted in the eyes of the nation. Because they work in close association with CBP and follow recommended practices, entries submitted by these members are not subject to stringent security checks like other, more questionable cargoes.
C-TPAT is a program that also offers its members the advantage of constant communication with the Supply Chain Security Specialist (SCSP) who is responsible for managing the relationship with CBP and answering all security-related questions. Wherever practicable and practicable, C-TPAT partner cargo is moved to the front of the processing line and if a delay occurs, upon resumption of service, their shipments and goods are handled first to reduce lag time.
