Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 14, 2012
Due to the upcoming holiday season, cargo theft increases significantly - more than 28% according to FreightWatch International. WAR-LOK, the global leader in transportation and supply chain security, wants to help keep your cargo secure.
With the holidays rapidly approaching it means that more drivers are susceptible to cargo theft as they will be spending more time at home than on the road. Most likely the loaded trucks will sit idle for a longer period of time giving thieves an opportunity to strike. Even though the majority of theft occurs in unsecured parking areas, theft from secured parking locations has grown steadily over the past few years.
According to CargoNet's Q3 2012 data, Dallas takes the number one spot for the nation’s highest level of theft incidents followed by Los Angeles, Doral, and Houston. The most popular day for cargo theft occurrences is Friday and typically occurs at warehouses, parking lots, and truck stops. Recently featured on CBS Money Watch, WAR-LOK offers the following tips to keep your cargo safe during the holiday season:
Cargo locks, such as those made by WAR-LOK, are sold in truck stops, Amazon, and through many online distribution channels. Do not endanger a shipment when a simple solution is affordable and readily available.
