A REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT ON THE NATIONAL CARGO SECURITY PROGRAM

The report describes the activities of the various elements of government and the transportation industry in a cooperative national program dedicated to the prevention of cargo theft. The highlights are: Cargo losses in the motor carrier industry have stabilized. Further effort by the national's truckers in this Program will improve that trend. The airlines are continuing to make good progress in reducing the trend of air cargo losses. Railroads face unique difficulties in protecting freight from theft-related losses and damage. New procedures are proposed for shared responsibility by rail shippers. The lack of maritime data remains a significant deficiency in the National Cargo Security Program, but a workable solution is emerging.
