Keller & Associates, Inc. is offering a free resource outlining security seal best practices and tips for choosing the right seal for various types of cargo.

Cargo theft rose 57% from 2022 to 2023, representing nearly $130 million in stolen goods (per CargoNet). One common way transporters deter theft and tampering is by using security seals.

Security seals act as a deterrent to potential thieves by visibly indicating if a trailer or container has been tampered with. The seals are available in a variety of 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, Inc. “Investing in security seals not only protects assets but also fosters a secure and resilient transportation infrastructure essential for commerce.”

J. J. Keller offers a wide selection of security seals in varying styles and strengths. This includes the company’s newly enhanced proprietary plastic truck seal. This seal was developed based on in-depth customer input to include the features most important to transporters:
