Forwarding agent Keimeier & Finke has been moving goods around the world for 70 years. The need for a more efficient, secure system of key management led the company to Traka, which recommended its L-series key cabin
The need for a more efficient, secure system of key management led the company to Traka, which recommended its L-series key cabinet, capable of accommodating up to 360 key locations.
At the heart of the cabinet is the iFob: an intelligent bullet-shaped device which contains a chip with a unique serial number, giving each one an individual ID. Keys are attached to the iFob using self-locking security seals.
The iFob is made from nickel-plated brass and is suitable for use in cold stores at -30Â°C. Its shape allows it to automatically lock into the Traka cabinet and its smooth surface is self-cleaning. Ines Owen, international distribution manager, says: "The Traka cabinet has solved our problems. No more looking for keys - we can follow up at any time who was the last to use which key and whether or not they returned it. To log into the system, every employee has their own PIN number which is used in conjunction with a biometrics fingerprint reader. The initial purchase price of the cabinet was quickly recouped."
