Whether you’re new to trucking or an industry veteran, we’d like to remind you about the rise in freight theft around the holidays. Usually, there’s always a big uptick in cargo theft that starts around Thanksgiving especially with food and beverage items. According to CargoNet, the most-stolen items during the last 4 Thanksgiving weeks were food and beverage. CargoNet is a vendor that tracks theft and has lots of data on the topic.
Just don’t let your guard down because thefts in recent years have included full-truck load theft of vehicles, electronics, clothing, shoes, and more. The firm, FreightWatch recommends truckers and trucking companies make sure they’re up-to-date on their in-transit and warehouse operations security protocols.
Hopefully, you haven’t been a victim of cargo theft. We’d like to keep it that way. If you’re in need of Working Capital for growth or when hit with the unexpected, give us a call at 800.705.1500. We have several funding options and would be happy to walk you through them and see what fits best with your company’s needs.
