Red truckThieves don’t always need an elaborate plan to steal the cargo off a truck like you see in the movies. Instead, they can steal cargo while a driver is using the restroom or running into a convenience store to grab a snack. If the truck is idling and the keys are in plain sight, it can be easy for a thief to steal the cargo, or the entire truck. Simple neglect can cause your cargo to get stolen in a matter of a few minutes. There are many ways to avoid losing cargo right out from under your nose. Here are some ways your truck driver can decrease the risk of cargo theft.

Pay Attention

One of the easiest ways for a thief to steal cargo is when the driver isn’t paying attention. It is important for drivers to always be aware of their surroundings. If the area looks suspicious or there is a person lurking around the truck, you want to take precautions. Rarely does a cargo theft involve violence and guns, but it could happen. If your driver must leave a truck unattended, then they must follow your company-wide policy for locking their vehicles. This will make it much harder for thieves to steal any cargo.

Secure Trailers

There are many opportunities for thieves to sell your cargo on the market. With the cost of everything increasing, thieves take advantage of every opportunity given to them. Developing a security protocol for your trailers helps eliminate the allure for thieves. Padlocked trailers are a deterrent because it takes more effort to break into them.

Take Advantage of Technology

Technology has become increasingly popular in the trucking industry. Trucks have a lot more security options than they once did. Applying these additional security features to the truck and cargo can prove to be substantial for decreasing the risk of cargo theft. Additionally, you must train employees on how to properly secure the truck and cargo using this type of technology. From remote security systems to armored trucks, security can range in complexity. By using additional security features for your truck, you are like to lower your trucking insurance premiums, as well making this a win-win for your company.
