Trucking Surveillance & Video Monitoring Security Technology

Posted by Sean Murphy on April 13, 2017

Trucking surveillance for transportation and logistics security has come a long way in a short time. Remote video monitoring has significantly improved trucking security and access control, especially in remote locations.

Commercial sites like warehouses and distribution centers are often manned by security guards who manually control site and security gate access and log the details. These individuals also keep an eye on the property itself.

Transit and trailer processes can now take advantage of remote trucking surveillance with the advent of reliable communications, HD cameras, and Internet technology and networking. Trucking security is easier to track and more cost-effective.

How does it work?

Live surveillance monitoring can offer a full turnkey solution. Trucking surveillance can ID the driver and truck upon arrival, verify their identity and right of entry, and even follow them around the compound to mitigate additional risk and liability. The security technology can be deployed at corporate facilities across North America to provide real-time monitoring, which is a key deterrent against cargo theft and other losses.

A recorded trucking security video cannot be used after the fact to stop vandals or thieves. As a result, live monitoring has prospered as a leading method of logistics security. A remote security service can watch gates, lots, fences, common areas, and buildings and report suspicious behavior in real-time to the police.

A police statistics report in Canada indicated that commercial crime incidents, including those for trucking security, are much lower than previous years. Police credit this downward trend to the use of surveillance cameras and advanced technology, including live video monitoring.

Trucking surveillance can extend to the trucks themselves, whether in transit or the yard. A two camera system and a GPS tracking device can be installed in a truck or other vehicle along with a cellular mobile Internet connection. This surveillance system can monitor the vehicle interior and exterior. Remote operators can view who enters the vehicle and what is being loaded or removed.
