Drivers urged to guard cargo over holiday weekend

| August 31, 2011

Drivers should be aware of increased cargo theft especially at terminals and drop yards during Labor Day weekend, says Dan Burges of security provider FreightWatch International.

Cargo theft rates rise an average of 28 percent over this and other long weekends, he says, noting that they “provide criminals with excellent opportunities to target, steal and transport goods to their storage locations before the product is even discovered missing.” Loaded trailers that are parked for long periods over the weekend are vulnerable, Burges says.
