Christmas Holidays 2022

Security & Cargo Seals Ltd. will close for Christmas and New Years holidays on Friday the 23rd of December at 1.00pm and reopen on Tuesday the 3rd of January 2023.

To ensure delivery of orders before Christmas the last day for dispatch will be Wednesday the 21st of December 2022.

We would like to wish all of our customers a safe and happy Christmas and New Year and hope all will have a healthy and prosperous year in 2023.

Price Increases

Security & Cargo Seals Ltd. will be increasing its prices from the 01.05.2022.

After a long period of stability we have had a number of price increases from our suppliers over the last year and we have now been notified of further increases in April 2022.

These increases relate to changes in material costs, shipping and freight charges, rates of exchange, customs duties, and inflation – all of which we have no control over.

We have been able to hold off with price increases until now due to bulk buying early last year.

However new stock arriving over the coming months will be substantially dearer and unfortunately, we now must pass on these extra costs.

Please check prices before ordering. In general, increases will be in the 8-15% range.

We thank you for your business to date and hope you will continue to look to us for your supply going forward.

Stock Levels

Because of Brexit, the Covid-19 crises and the Suez Canal incident earlier this year, our lead times for re-supply have doubled.

To overcome this we are now buying a lot of our stock on a yearly rather than on a monthly / quarterly basis so as to ensure having adequate supply on our own premises in Dublin.

Consequently, our stock levels in Dublin are high and they are continuously monitored.

We are confident that all orders for standard non-customized seals can be satisfied without any lead time or backorder element.

Remote Working

Although the end of the Covid-19 pandemic seems to be in sight, the staff of Security & Cargo Seals Ltd. have elected to continue to work remotely.

Staff are on our premises as needed but we would request customers and suppliers not to call to our premises without prior appointment and to practice social distancing while there.

Appointments can be made by contacting us through our main office phone number and usual email addresses.

All orders are being dispatched on a daily basis and enquiries are being responded to the same day.

We are likely to continue with this model of working on a permanent basis.

US requirements

In the aftermath of the 9/11 disaster, the US Customs & Excise had a thorough review of security standards at their ports. Amongst other changes, this review made mandatory the sealing of all containers entering the US – either empty or fully loaded.

The current requirement is that all containers entering the US be sealed with a seal that conforms to ISO PAS 17712:2013 and is C-TPAT compliant.

Security & Cargo Seals Limited stock Bolt and Cable seals that comply with this standard.
