In this section of our website we want to focus
on shipping container security issues relating to
freight operations and static storage. We will
bring you the best security technologies from
around the world, covering export and Import of
Shipping Container Security issues. Over 25
million freight containers are currently
circulating the world with about seven million of
them passing through UK. ports every year.

physically inspected. Security experts have
warned of doomsday scenarios involving
unchecked containers that may harbour
terrorists, explosives, or other hazardous

Were you aware of the numbers involved ? The
good news is that enhanced container security
methods, based on technologies such as,
cellular and satellite communications, are on
the way. These technologies also promise
substantial commercial benefits from a supply
chain and enterprise resource planning
perspective. Depending on the technology and
application, electronic tracking can not only log
a container's movements around the world
sometimes in real time, but can also alert
administrators that, for instance, a container
was opened without authorization From a
logistics point of view no matter how advanced
we may become with security monitoring of
Shipping Containers, there will always be
someone or some organisation that
circumnavigates the system. Nothing beats the
watchful eye be alert. With the rapid expansion
of containerised self storage throughout the
world we now focus on the issue of security for
static shipping containers for self storage
companies. This takes on several initiatives, the
storage companies responsibility, the storage
renters legal obligation, and the ability to
prevent petty theft from containers.

Here is a link to the Self Storage Federation
website with an article relating to self storage
renting. The contents is good reading, check
the editorials section for useful shipping
container self store information.  Concerning
static container security we suggest you look at These websites offer a
