MARITIME CARGO LOSS PREVENTION. VOLUME 1: A HANDBOOK FOR PORT EXECUTIVES, TERMINAL OPERATORS, LAW ENFORCEMENT, SHIPPERS, INSURERS AND RELATED RAIL AND MOTOR CARRIERS
Activities underway by our Nation's maritime community to combat crimes against cargo are fragmented in both nature and implementation and do not appear to be significantly reducing the incidence or value of cargo loss. There is no coordinated, systematic industry approach to the cargo loss problem. This Handbook has been undertaken to encourage the adoption of such an approach through the use of this cost-effective, systematic methodology by which the national transportation problem of cargo theft/loss can be reduced. The Handbook is a detailed analysis of management practices and cargo and documentation flow. It spotlights cargo vulnerability to loss and theft and describes cost-effective, practicable means to reduce this vulnerability within the managerial-operational needs of a total seaport system. Recommended maritime cargo security advisory guidelines are presented.
