Sealing cargo plays an important role in the implementation of sea and road transport according to the customs procedure of customs transit, as a way of identifying goods, ensuring compliance with this customs procedure.
It is necessary to observe certain rules for cargo sealing, which are not always known to the participants of transportation. This procedure should be considered in the following contexts: shipper seal to ensure safety during the delivery process; sealing by customs officials in order to ensure identification of goods transported under customs control. In both cases, the general goals are pursued: the exclusion of access by unauthorized persons, recording the facts of opening the cargo compartment of the vehicle, ensuring safety along the route.
Sealing the cargo allows you to protect yourself from unnecessary claims, such as the charge of partial loss or theft of cargo.
