New Freedom, PA (PRWEB) March 8, 2010
TBB Global Logistics, a 64-year-old, nationally-known, third party supply chain management firm (http://www.tbbgl.com), announces a new partnership with LoJack® Supply Chain Integrity (http://www.lojacksci.com). The agreement allows TBB to provide customers with the LoJack® Supply Chain Integrity (LoJack® SCI™) in-transit cargo protection technology solution. LoJack® SCI™ technology-enabled tracking devices and monitoring services increase the security and protection of valuable cargo.
Cargo theft is a multi-billion dollar problem and getting worse, with recent reports showing rapid increases in reported crimes in 2009 over 2008. To protect against risk, companies must protect their products as they move toward their final destination.
"We are excited to be the first to offer LoJack® SCI™ technology to clients that need to insure their high-value cargo arrives safely at destination," said Samuel R. Polakoff, president of TBB Global Logistics. "This new partnership pairs us with a company renowned for its tracking intelligence and recovery reputation, further expanding TBB's wide offering of domestic and international supply chain management services."
The LoJack® SCI™ portable tracking devices are the size of a mobile phone and use a combination of global positioning system (GPS), cellular and radio-frequency technologies to monitor the precise location, and or temperature, of a shipment throughout the entire course of transportation. High-value items such as designer clothes, electronics and pharmaceuticals are heavily targeted by thieves. Monitoring temperature of some pharmaceutical products is equally important to maintain their integrity and to keep the public safe. Shippers utilizing the tracking service would place a tracking device in a discrete location among the cargo. If the cargo is stolen or goes missing, multiple authorities are contacted and recovering the cargo becomes much easier knowing its precise location.
"Partnering with a respected supply chain management firm like TBB Global Logistics makes sense because it allows their valued customers to access a breakthrough cargo protection solution that provides 24/7 visibility for shipments as they move through the supply chain," said Robert Furtado, president and CEO, LoJack Supply Chain Integrity.
