Prevent Cargo Theft with Industrial Security Systems

Posted by Amy Hite on May 17, 2017

How can trucking managers prevent cargo theft? Cargo theft is a huge problem for industrial property, warehouse, and logistics hub managers. Loss of precious cargo can increase overhead and decrease client trust. Regular thefts can lead a massive financial loss over time.

Remote Monitoring Protects Fleet Trucks from Thieves

At 1:54, a Stealth industrial security systems operator sees two suspicious individuals at an industrial property. The individuals walk toward the fleet of delivery trucks. Thieves can steal cargo, vehicles, car parts, and other valuable property late at night. Common car parts stolen include GPS systems, wheels, tires, and catalytic converters. There are fewer witnesses on the commercial property and a lower likelihood of getting caught when it's dark and no one is watching

A Stealth trucking specialist operates a PTZ camera and zooms in on the crime in progress. PTZ cameras are used to find identifying information such as locations, facial appearance, clothing, and license plates. Stealth Monitoring calls the local police. Crimes in progress usually lead to a faster police response time.

Seven minutes later, responding police officers arrive. One of the would-be thieves attempts to hide underneath a truck. The responding officers find the individual. Both late night trespassers are arrested and removed from the industrial property.
