As an important part of the American economy and infrastructure, Rail carriers must periodically assess their degree of vulnerability to risk and must find innovative solutions for strengthening or adjusting their security to prevent breaches and internal conspiracies. They must also conduct a comprehensive assessment of their security practices based upon the C-TPAT minimum-security criteria. Recognizing that rail carriers do not control their shippers and have a common carrier obligation to transport goods tendered to them, TydenBrooks has developed a line of cable seals perfectly suited for sealing bulk railcars, as well as intermodal containers and trailers.
Rail Carrier’s Commitment to C-TPAT
The sealing of rail cars along with continuous seal integrity are crucial elements of a secure supply chain, and remain a critical aspect of a rail carrier’s commitment to C-TPAT. To the extent practical, a high security seal should be affixed to all loaded rail cars bound for the U.S. Rail carriers crossing the U.S. border must also fully comply with seal verification rules and seal anomaly reporting requirements once promulgated and mandated by the U.S. government. For railcars carrying high value goods in a number of different environments, TydenBrooks has developed the FlexSecure FS 50 Cable Seal under the ISO 17712:2010 testing standard and has assured that it is C-TPAT and PIP compliant.
TydenBrook’s FlexSecure Cable Seals
This FlexSecure FS 50 versatile cable seal fits many applications and is popular for sealing bulk railcars and intermodal containers and trailers. The non-preformed cable frays wildly when cut and is galvanized for corrosion protection. Additionally, the FlexSecure FS50 Cable Seal makes use of a patent pending locking mechanism inside the anodized aluminum housing, to ensure goods always stay safe in transit. Along with the FlexSecure FS 50, TydenBrooks offers two other FlexSecure cable seals:
FlexSecure FS 15 Cable Seal - This cable seal is regularly used in bulk food and chemical shipments over the road.
FlexSecure FS 35 Cable Seal - This versatile cable seal fits many applications and is popular for sealing bulk railcars and intermodal containers and trailers. The FS35 Cable Seal also rates High Security per ISO 17712:2010 testing standard and is C-TPAT and PIP compliant.
Our new FlexSecure cable seals joins our established EZ Loc and Multi-Lok cable seal product line to offer customers a wide range of ISO 17712:2010 Indicative, Security, and High Security cable seals.
The Importance of Quality Security Seals
When it comes to security seals, service is as important as quality, so consumers need to choose products from a reliable company that offers outstanding services to its customers. Whenever a businessperson needs to secure food products or chemicals that are shipped across the country in containers, they can count on cable seals to help protect the business and its loyal consumers.
