ABLOY USA and Transport Security Mark 40-Year Collaboration
Throughout most of its history Transport Security has partnered with ABLOY USA to sell ENFORCER padlocks for trailers and containers.
IRVING, Texas — Transport Security, a leading provider of cargo security solutions, has served the freight transportation industry for more than four decades. Based in Waconia, Minn., the company specializes in providing high security solutions for the fleet trucking, supply chain, portable storage and retail sectors.
Throughout most of its history Transport Security has partnered with ABLOY USA to sell ENFORCER padlocks for trailers and containers. In a joint announcement marking their 40-year partnership, both companies say they are looking forward to increasing market share in 2020.
“Security within the transportation and shipping industry has evolved substantially in recent years due to the increased risks in theft,” states Keith Astrup, president of Transport Security. “In the United States, cargo theft is estimated to cost customers approximately $15 billion in annual losses, so awareness is at an all-time high. We partner with Abloy because their padlocks give our customers the type of security that is second to none.”
The ENFORCER padlocks employ a series of disc tumblers that function like those from a bank safe. Most are available with the new and patented Sentry keyway. Transport Security maintains the key codes for future key replacement and can set up a system for keyed alike or master keyed systems. The padlocks also utilize a unique rotating disc cylinder that is said to be effectively pick proof and stands up to harsh winter weather conditions.
“Keith and his team at Transport Security do a tremendous job. It’s why they are recognized as the nationwide leader in cargo security solutions,” says Jerry Burhans, managing director of ABLOY USA. “The ENFORCER brand line is highly regarded throughout the industry and there are thousands of ENFORCER padlocks secured by ABLOY attached to trailers and containers around the world. We are committed to helping them grow their business, and that’s one of the top priorities Joe Brown, our new vertical market manager of transportation, has on his agenda.”
Nick Erdmann, Transport Security’s director of sales, comments the company incorporate all of the ABLOY USA padlocks and cylinders into its product offerings for trailer and truck security solutions.
“Our customers like the durability of their padlocks and cylinders, along with the ease of use and not having to replace locks due to malfunctioning. We have many customers that continue to use their ABLOY USA locks for years and years with great success,” Erdmann says.
ABLOY USA, based here, is a manufacturer of locks, locking systems, architectural hardware and electromechanical locking technology. As a brand of the ASSA ABLOY Group, the company serves a wide range of customer industries, from casino gaming, health clubs and locker space, OEM and parking meters, to public utilities, transportation, U.S. government and vending.
