Cargo Thieves Are Sophisticated Experts at “Supply and Demand”. Steal only goods that are easy to unload. They Know the supply chain and strike at it’s weakest point. Travel hundreds of miles to get what they want (Fla./Calif./Tenn./NJ). Conduct clandestine surveillances

Of course the loads never arrive at the destination and are never seen again Deceptive Pickups – YTD 11 events, 38/2011, 29/2010,
Regional Gangs Miami/South Florida: “HIALEAH” gang, theft of Full Truck Loads “FTL”. Possibly the single most active theft group in the U.S. New York/New Jersey: Larger gangs aligned with the gangs from the south Florida/California. Gangs that steal “FTL” and “Grab and Runs” within NJ, New York City, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. We know Cargo Gangs are: –Persistent –Patient –Plans in detail –Practices It is just a matter of time.
“How the Bad Guys Do it” Armed Robbery/Kidnapping: Impersonate plainclothes police officers, kidnap driver, steal load, retain driver’s wallet/cell phone. Theft at Unsecured Yard Extensive surveillance of your yard looking for any opportunity to steal your trailer with/without your tractor. Most often obtained inside information. Theft at Pick Up locations: Gang follows trailer till driver stops at pick up location, observes him going into the warehouse, gang members enter the rear of the trailer, loading cartons into a SUV.
“How the Bad Guys Do it” Diversion Tactic 1: A gang member approached a driver to redirect their attention (request directions) at a DC while other gang members remove products from the rear of the trailer. Most truckers are unaware they were ever hit. Diversion Tactic 2: A gang members will follow the load until the 2 nd /3 rd stop. Approach the driver as if there were an employee of that DC and leads them to the trucker’s lounge. Tells them to wait until someone calls them. While other gang members unload the trailer to a near by SUV.

Noted Air Cargo Case Dept. of Justice – Southern District of Indiana: On 2/8/2012 US Attorney Joseph Hogsett announced that OHL Solutions, Inc. (formerly of ActivAir - NY based Company) agreed to a TSA civil penalty of $1 million fine for shirking their responsibility to screen cargo under Certified Cargo Screening program (CCSP) for explosives that was destined for passenger planes. Three Indianapolis employees were arrested and pled to conspiracy to commit federal reporting and recordkeeping violations. Each face a maximum of 5 years in prison and $250,000 fine. Bottom line - The employees failed to properly screen cargo for passenger aircraft and certified that they did.
Fictitious Pickups Deceptive/Fictitious Pickups – Driver wearing a carrier uniform, presents counterfeit paperwork, duct tapes carrier signs on the tractor, presents counterfeit Driver’s license/company identification. No one validates the paperwork/ID. Signs for the load and departs location. When in doubt contact the carrier directly.

Target Hardening Your Supply Chain Identify weaknesses after an investigation. Cradle to grave mind set/root cause analysis. Review of cases shared from cargo theft alerts. Information shared from cargo security meetings. Performing security audits. Think proactively. Work with your business partners.
Best Practices with New Carriers Perform a Dun and Bradstreet audit for Company History/ number of years in service, financial condition Obtain and verify company references Go to DOT / Safer Website – provides company snapshot - http://safer.fmcsa.dot.gov/CompanySnapshot.aspx Verify insurance information by calling insurance company – cross referencing company contact information and phone numbers. Search for the company on the internet (face book/) to verify information. If they don’t match red flags should raise up. You must validate that you are truly hiring the listed company. Beware of internet postings to contract loads (know who you are contracting too!)
