Temperature-controlled truckload carrier KLLM Transport Services has announced that it is installing Power In-Lock internal locking systems on its fleet of trailers.
The Power In-Lock system is a remotely controlled deadbolt style lock that was developed by Q Products & Services to serve as an additional level of security against cargo thieves.
With the new system, KLLM said that it will be able to provide shippers with documented proof that their product was not compromised during transport.
Once a lock is activated, the door cannot be opened until the trailer reaches its destination and can only be opened to KLLM operations personnel, according to the carrier. The company can also provide an up-to-date record of all lock and door activity to tell if the cargo was ever tampered with.
"This locking mechanism will offer our customers an even higher measure of security against theft, tampering, or any event that may pose a threat to the integrity of the product," said Jim Richards, KLLM president and CEO. "Our doors are locked electronically from our Jackson headquarters as soon as the trailer is loaded, and the trailer is locked from the inside, totally out of sight and out of reach of thieves.
KLLM also announced that it is already compliant with the Food Safety Modernization ACT standards that were enacted in April of this year. The Jackson, Miss.-based carrier is inviting shippers to call KLLM for more information.
"For shippers whose product integrity is vital, see how KLLM will handle your shipment with the care and security you want," said Richards.
