How to Protect Your High Value/High Risk Cargo
Unfortunately, professional thieves are using the COVID-19 outbreak to their advantage and are targeting truckloads delivering high demand goods such as medical supplies, food and beverage products, and essential household goods.
Historically, cargo thieves targeted freight such as electronics, apparel, pharmaceuticals, and other obvious high-value items. Recently, truckloads of personal protective equipment (PPE) and consumer packaged goods are being targeted and stolen while in transit. While these items were not obvious high-risk items a few months ago, the impact of the pandemic has increased the need for these products– as well as the risk for their theft.
During this unprecedented time, how can you protect your goods and ensure the safety of your high-value, high-risk (HV/HR) shipments?
There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to protecting HV/HR loads. We utilize the latest technology and collaborate with shippers, carriers, and law enforcement to spot cargo theft trends, assess risk, and develop effective loss prevention techniques to protect your cargo.
