BAR LOCKS, add extra protection to keep your cargo safe

Theft issues can generate stress when it comes to transporting high-value cargoes.

CMA CGM Bar Lock

By adding steel bar locks to your container’s doors, it makes it much more difficult and long to open for eventual thieves and keep your cargo as safe as possible during transportation.

Bar locks will help you save costs and avoid complicated insurance claims.

One of our clients in the tobacco industry reduced incidents from 4 to 0 in 18 months thanks to steel bar locks.

Bar locks will remain sealed the entire way and only be opened at the destination using a circular steel saw.

To order a container with a bar lock with your regular security seal - just ask your local representative!

Reduce risks and costs

  • Reduce risks of cargo theft and all its consequences
  • Reduce insurance fees
  • Have a strong safety device simply delivered with your container
