TAKING CARE OF ALL YOUR INTERNATIONAL RELOCATION NEEDS DOOR TO DOOR
When closing the container, please ensure that you first shut the left door and then the right door. It is recommended to place the container seal on the right door since it will be the first one opened. You can place the seal on either one or both of the lock rods of the right door.
The seal number is a unique identification number assigned to each container seal. Each seal has its own individual identification number.
Bolt seals are robust locking devices that function as “one-time usable padlocks.” Nowadays, most bolt seals manufactured by ISO 17712:2013 certified manufacturers are classified as “high-security seals.” This classification is one of several requirements that a bolt seal must meet to comply with C-TPAT regulations.
The container number is a crucial and intricate marking on the door, consisting of a unique alphanumeric sequence of four letters and seven numbers. It serves to identify containers internationally.
Please take a picture of the container seal and container number after closing the door.
Important note: Container seals should not be removed by border security officers for inspection purposes or by prime mover/truck drivers. They should only be removed by the recipient at the destination. Since seals are designed to be tough to break, the recommended method for removal is by using a bolt cutter.
