This is part of the Food Security Facility Risk Analysis that we do annually. This part is a must for us. Voted sealed  by warehouse after loading and Padlock for Multiple stops or LTL's.

I am being told by our Trucking Manager that he cannot use padlocks in the winter because they freeze up. How do you handle this (assuming you transport in cold regions)?

We generally buy in full truck load quantities so we have seals with an identifying number and our company name.  Generally speaking we sell that way too, so the same would apply. 

 

We provide the seals to our vendor when shipping our loads.

We are a co-packer and transport is arranged by the customer. Once it is on the wagon, and we have a signed copy of the despatch note, it is their responsibility

 

We don't secure; the onus is on them

There are special locks that fit on most trucks, that are not just a simple padlock, but locks the vertical bars of both doors together. (can not find the hyperlink)

 

In my past company with had to combat illegal immigrants wanting to move out of France into the UK, on board with our product. Just a seal was simply not enough.

Company drivers apply a lock (whether a full trailer or an LTL) that is numbered and documented on the paperwork as the lock being used on the load. In the event we use 3rd party transport, we require them to have a lock/seal on the trailer and we verify that it is there prior to them leaving (we don't use 3rd party very often - mostly during the busy season of summer).

In the US midwest, we have issues with the locks freezing also. Our back warehouse manager has the lock deicer in his office.  And we have the MSDS  :smarty:

You need to add an N/A for both questions or an other option.  We don't do multistop loads so I can't vote.
