Container locks: what types are there?
And which container lock provides the best protection against theft?
Containers are often left unattended outdoors. Naturally, you want to prevent any unauthorised person from opening your (shipping) container. You also want the doors of your container to remain locked during transportation and your cargo to arrive safely at its destination. You can do that by fitting your container with a container lock. While criminals can open or manipulate a standard container seal quite easily, a container lock will ensure that unauthorised persons are unable to gain access to a (shipping) container. That is how you can prevent fraud, damage, break-ins and theft. But what types of containerlocks are there? And which one should you choose? We have listed the options for you below.
