3D-printed fake seals used to mask cargo thefts
Security seals, such as as those used in RKN and reefer trucks, for shipments of temperature sensitive BioPharma products are being cloned with 3D printers, to aid in the theft of these valuable shipments:
Cargo thieves have used 3D printers to make fake security seals to hide when a shipment has been compromised.
In some cases the cloned seals are so ingenious they even match the identification numbers on the original, according to third-party logistics organisation SpedLogSwiss, which reports an incident in which the scam was used in the theft of a pharmaceutical shipment.
