GOODS IN TRANSIT - TARGET FOR THIEVES

Top management is the only group capable of reducing the opportunity for employees to steal. Careful screening of potential employees is cited as an important step in the reduction of transportation crime. Other recommendations include development of a strong security-conscious management team, implementation of sound cargo handling and paper control procedures, and provision of adequate physical security and facilities to deter thieves. A survey reveals that each transportation terminal has to be considered as a unique system requiring a unique security response. The document contains statistics on losses as well as legislation to help solve the problem.
