KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Cargo security specialist TrakLok says it has added new features to its platform, improving monitoring and alerts for lock and latch status changes as well as enter and exit fences and low battery issues.


The system is an integrated lock, alarm and tracking product that allows fleets to better monitor cargo and prevent theft.

“Our integrated security platform designed by an engineering team with extensive experience in the development of cargo security systems, sensor platforms and low power management systems provides a layered approach by combining tracking with a robust locking solution to deter unauthorized access to remote and in-transit loads,” said Tom Mann, president of TrakLok. “Through our continuous improvement program, part of an ISO-9000 Quality System, we have now developed new security features that address the issue of load tampering, and enhance the most robust cargo security system on the market.”

There are now four user-selected alerts for locked/unlocked and latched/unlatched status changes, a configurable alert notification if unknown/invalid codes are entered into the device, an alert notification when the battery charge falls below a pre-set level and support for international addresses.

There’s also a geofence feature, which can prevent the lock from opening anywhere other than user-defined locations. For more info, visit
