A barrier seal is used to prevent unauthorized access to your lading. When loading outbound railcars, the customer has the sole responsibility to protect the lading inside the railcar, which includes the application of barrier seals.
The Maryland and Delaware Railroad Company (MDDE) does not provide barrier seals to customers. Further, MDDE will also not participate in, or be party to, claims for lading or loss damage except to the extent necessary to honor a previously executed service agreement, tariff or contract.
MDDE does not require, nor recommend, a specific brand of seal. There are many manufactures of these products from which to choose, including (click manufacturer name to visit their website) Tyden Brammall, CGM Security Solutions, and Mega Fortis (USA), Inc.
We appreciate the efforts taken to protect your lading, and a barrier seal is a prudent, and proper, first step towards doing so.
