Safeguard Your Cargo: 5 Essential Measures

The rise in cargo theft incidents, resulting in $223 million in losses last year in the U.S. and Canada alone, underscores the critical importance of implementing robust freight security measures. As you navigate this ever-changing landscape, consider adopting the following key strategies:

  • Verify Driver Credentials: Swiftly authenticate driver details upon cargo pickup to confirm the legitimacy of the carrier. Collaborate with your broker to ensure accurate capture and validation of essential information such as CDL, DOT number, and company affiliation.
  • Coordinate Stakeholders: Foster transparent communication channels to disseminate security expectations among all parties involved in the freight movement process. From internal teams to third-party facilities, unified coordination is pivotal for bolstering security measures.
  • Enhance Digital Security: Mitigate cyber threats by restricting access to digital accounts and emphasizing strict password management practices. Assign unique login credentials and prioritize password integrity to significantly reduce the risk of unauthorized access and data breaches.
  • Optimize Shipment Schedules: Strategically plan shipment schedules to minimize theft opportunities. Avoid prolonged periods of unattended freight by aligning shipment schedules with active transportation routes and coordinating stops strategically with carriers.
  • Partner with Reliable Brokers: Collaborate with brokers prioritizing security measures and committed to rigorous vetting processes. Look for partners with established incident response protocols and active engagement with reputable theft monitoring organizations to proactively address emerging threats.
