TrakLok International, a firm specialising in trailer and container security, has announced it has received two industry awards for its integrated access control system that provides a turnkey solution for cargo security. The accolades are the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 2015 Pros to Know Award and the Heavy Duty Trucking annual list of Top 20 Products.

Tom Mann, President of TrakLok, said: “In early February, the FreightWatch International Supply Chain Intelligence Center (FWI SCIC) received reports of over 40 pilferage events at truck stops and highway pull-offs in Arkansas.

“That is just one example of the increase in cargo theft that is taking place. These two awards demonstrate the increasing importance that access control plays in trucking and securing the entire supply chain.”

The awards received by TrakLok for its integrated access control system, a reusable cargo security device that provides robust physical security, multi-sensor alarm, GPS tracking and wireless alerts, include:

Supply & Demand Chain Executive selected TrakLok President Tom Mann as one of its 2015 Pros to Know. The Pros to Know Awards recognise supply chain executives, and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate.

Heavy Duty Trucking named TrakLok to its annual list of the Top 20 Products introduced in the past year. TrakLok was selected based on its innovation that addresses a significant industry issue or concern, and its potential to improve a trucking operation’s bottom line.

A panel of editors and experienced fleet executives and maintenance managers, including HDT’s Truck Fleet Innovators and leading fleet equipment and maintenance executives, chooses Top 20 Products.

Mann added: “Whether you need to maintain an FDA compliant system or you manage commercial assets, TrakLok gives you complete control over cargo access, including location, integrity and exception information in real time.

“We are proud to be honoured by Supply & Demand Chain Executive with a Pros to Know Award and by Heavy Duty Trucking as one of its Top 20 Products.”

TrakLok International represents the coming together of a cargo security company and a wireless design firm to create a robust and intelligent cargo security device. Located in Knoxville, Tennessee, the TrakLok cargo security system includes: a hardened lock that withstands prying, cutting, or impact tools; an integrated alarm that sends alerts for unauthorised attempts to access cargo; and a GPS tracking system with a cloud-based Web portal that allows access to real-time information on location and cargo integrity.
