Cargo Theft Targets Trends and Hotspots

July 4th Cargo Theft Trends

July 1, 2021

Transport Topics recently published an article on the surge in trucking cargo theft since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. The article cited CargoNet, who reported there were 1,502 total theft events in 2020, compared to 1,106 in 2019 and 1,181 in 2018.

For those who are unfamiliar with CargoNet, it is a national information-sharing system to combat cargo theft. Members come from a range of industries including insurance, law enforcement, transportation, manufacturing, retail, and others. The purpose of CargoNet is to share information and intelligence to prevent cargo theft.

CargoNet recently published an excellent infographic on July 4th cargo theft trends. We are sharing here, courtesy of CargoNet, Versisk business. To read the entire article visit CargoNet.com. Take a moment to review the statistics and determine if the security and theft prevention measures you have in place are sufficient.  Have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July holiday.
