Warehouse Security - The Weakest Link In Your Chain
Facilitating the secure transfer of goods from manufacturer to consumer is no small task, especially with the surge in online shopping; more goods are flowing through warehouse facilities than ever before.
The ongoing pressures to process, transfer and deliver goods swiftly is increasing, unfortunately creating vulnerabilities in the supply chain that are susceptible to theft.
According to Loss Prevention magazine, cargo theft is a yearly $15-$30 billion problem. These are the minimum as a significant amount of cargo theft goes unreported due to the fear of business premium increase or there is no evidence for law enforcement to pursue the thieves.
Adding Mobile Surveillance Trailers Can Mitigate Theft
Warehouses are frequent targets, especially during the holiday weekends when trucks are parked and unattended.
Protecting your perimeter, surveillance placement, and using the right equipment inside your warehouse are crucial.
