Nevertheless, a greater awareness is being shown by shippers, road haulers, container and terminal operators towards the need for better cargo protection. Many effective security systems are now operated, with the equipment used in them steadily being raised in quality. Ultimately, though, security experts stress that real progress in the security sector is inextricably linked to financial considerations.
