Locking packaging


Well packaged with security. The ability to lock packaging securely is becoming increasingly important for a wide variety of industry sectors including e-commerce, medicine and pharmacy and also food products. This means that the requirements for transportation security and product protection are also increasing. As an innovative packaging expert, THIMM has developed security locks with the capacity to identify both the integrity of the secondary packaging and also whether it has been tampered with.

Security for manufacturers and customers. The ability to lock packaging securely in the e-commerce sector is becoming increasingly important and almost indispensable. Due to the year-on-year growth of the e-commerce sector the number of products being shipped is also increasing. Whether this is private shipping of personal items and gifts or orders from a favourite online shop, both should arrive securely and intact with the recipient. Secondary packaging with a security lock guarantees a secure initial opening of your package and also prevents against counterfeiting and manipulations.

The lock is visibly destroyed when the packaging is opened and cannot be reused. This means you will always recognise whether unauthorised third-parties have gained access your package and product.

All security locks are available in combination with secondary packaging. Please contact us and we will find the best locking solution for your products!
