SECURESEAL® TO PROTECT TESCO FLEET

Enfield, UK, 08 October 2009 - Tesco is improving security of goods in transit with SecureSeal’s tamper-evident trailer seals. SecureSeal® will replace electronic seals for all new build trailers and also replace faulty electronic seals in order to achieve optimum levels of security sealing across its 4,000 strong trailer fleet.

SecureSeal® is a permanent reusable seal with a unique random security number generator. These robust stainless steel devices are proven to provide long trouble-free life typically exceeding eight years. Tesco requires a high level of reliability and cost per sealing of under £15 per 1000 and this is  provided by SecureSeal®.

Tesco is committed to its Green Policy and avoids wasteful disposable seals in favour of environmentally-friendly reusable seals. With SecureSeal®, Tesco has resolved the common

problem of metal and plastic disposable seals being used temporarily to replace their failing electronic seals. Cliff Smith, Tesco’s Fleet Engineering Manager says: “Failure rate and replacement delays of the existing electronic seal were putting our high standard of security sealing at risk. SecureSeal® offers a more reliable, better value and longer term solution that will improve the security of goods in transit.”

 

OEM Group’s Chairman Ben Grant comments: “There are now in excess of 50,000 vehicles fitted with SecureSeal® and with the inclusion of Tesco the product is fitted on trailers of the world’s leading supermarkets on both sides of the Atlantic. SecureSeal Systems is part of the OEM Group and the SecureSeal® trailer seal is the company’s mainstream product that has been developed as part of a new generation of security and automated monitoring devices using the latest automatic RFID and mobile communications technology.
