Believe it or not, in the present day, pirates and predators in the business world exist both on land and on the sea. Argh! Compliance, safety, and accountability remain top issues, reports the American Transportation Research Institute in a large-scale survey of 2,500 North American industry stakeholders, “Critical Issues in the Trucking Industry.”
One of America’s largest drugstore chains, with more than 5,000 retail locations, transports merchandise in a high-security closed-loop distribution system via a private fleet of trucks. Each day, hundreds of trucks depart from dozens of distribution centers to deliver and retrieve merchandise on multiple stop routes.
Critical to the security program is a triple layer of tamper-evident protection, which includes security bags and tamper-evident carton tape, plastic indicative pull-tight tote seals, and truck seals.
None of us have to look back very hard to spot the headlines focused on election fraud cases or claims. In the last year alone, The Heritage Foundationlogged 1,438 cases of voter fraud in its Election Database. Fortunately, election seals help protect the democratic process by securing access to classified and confidential information with their tamper-evident features. With local and regional elections upon us, and national elections on the horizon, it’s more urgent than ever for every district and municipality to reassess and implement election a quality security seals program.
Despite economic uncertainties, global air travel is rising. The number of flights has already doubled this summer compared to last summer, according to Kathleen Bangs, a former commercial pilot and spokesperson at FlightAware. The increase in air travel reinforces the importance and reliability of tamper-evidentsecurity seals in air cargo transportation and air travel safety programs. That’s where Cambridge Security Seals excels.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the supply chain of just about every category, from Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical, and Consumer Products to Industrial & Manufacturing Parts, Warehouse & Distribution, and Freight and Logistics. While many companies have managed to battle their way through the shortages, contaminations, closures, and transportation difficulties, it has often come at the cost of reducing or ignoring the supply chain security protocols that ensure the safety and integrity of shipped items.
This is not to diminish the dedication and accomplishments of the manufacturers, farmers, producers, truckers, and retailers (among many others) whose extraordinary efforts have ensured the reasonably steady supply of high-quality food, drugs, and other necessities to the population. The situation has unfortunately provided nefarious actors with increased windows of opportunity for malfeasance, whether that take the form of theft, tampering, counterfeiting, or sabotage.
Protecting the public from international drug traffickers is not the first thing that comes to mind when people think about security seals. In fact, that is an often overlooked but very significant feature of our products.
When it comes to global cargo theft, Food and Beverage products are the most frequently stolen commodities, according to supply chain insurer TT Club. The combination of their ubiquity, which makes stolen shipments hard to trace, along with their ease of resale, make this category a prime target for thieves.
