Sentina Corp, a New York-based producer of protective cargo coverings, says it has been awarded the designation of 'Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology' under the Department of Homeland Security's Safety Act for its Freight Glove, a reusable, vacuum-sealable, and tamper-evident covering.

The Freight Glove is the flagship offering from Sentina Corp., a company focused on creating sustainable packagings that prevent unauthorized opening - and in the process protect shipments from water damage, theft, and presence of unwanted substances.

"With the Freight Glove's recently awarded designation as a 'Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology' by the Department of Homeland Security due to its superior protective features, and with companies such as Procter & Gamble and British Airways World Cargo having used Freight Gloves to protect their shipments, it is clear that the Freight Glove is on the leading edge of cargo security," said Jeff Garfinkle, President of Sentina Corp.

About the Freight Glove
Designed to meet government standards regarding safe, secure cargo, Sentina Corp.'s patented, reusable one-piece coverings, ideal for protecting high-value and sensitive shipments, fully encapsulate contents and are vacuum-sealed, providing an airtight, watertight, load-stabilizing, and secure environment that protects against both intentional and unintentional tampering – from the moment they are applied until the moment they are removed.  Any tampering of the Freight Glove or its contents is immediately evident, affording unparalleled peace of mind to the user.

Constructed using durable materials that withstand the rigors of multiple transports, these easy-to-apply units employ a special zipper and vacuum port to create a multi-tiered level of security and shipment integrity not achieved with traditional cargo wrappings.
