Protecting Valuable Cargo CARGO THEFT ISN’T NORMALLY A HEADLINE GRABBING ISSUE, BUT IT IS A COSTLY THREAT TO BUSINESSES EVERYWHERE. The regulations in this sector have changed significantly in recent years, with higher security being put in place to enhance cargo protection. In fact, pharma and high-tech industries have been so successful in preventing theft that criminals are now shifting their attention to other areas, but this doesn’t mean we can let our guard down. A variety of regulations, technologies, and best practices are helping high-value goods shippers deliver cargo where it needs to go, and as the world’s appetite for valuable goods grows, the locations these goods are sourced from becomes more diverse. Longer supply chains add additional touch points that make shipments more vulnerable. The answer to these security issues are often to use expedited services and direct routes that minimize the amount touch points and dwell time, two of the most vulnerable areas in the supply chain. Technological advancements have also made a significant impact; providing security at a lower cost, boosting efficiency, and enabling better tracking. A layered approach to security will always be the best way to ensure goods reach their intended destinations. This combination of stringent practices and strong partnerships allows businesses the ability to operate wherever the market takes them, rather than worrying about the risk level involved.
