Throughout North America, Latin America, Europe and other regions worldwide, trucking companies, third-party distributors and other transport providers have been battling an unwelcome and severe jump in criminal activity in particular – theft, tampering, burglary, armed robbery and high-jacking, - in recent months.
As a result, even the most responsible and reputable carrier organizations are finding themselves facing increasing customer scrutiny regarding their driver hiring and training practices, physical security measures, and other supply chain security protocols. At the same time, carrier organizations are facing a need for new ways to contain costs and enhance revenue to offset unpredictable fuel supplies and various other regulatory pressures.
Not only do damage, loss, and claims increase your overall transportation costs, they can negatively affect your relationships with your partners and ultimately your bottom line. Fortunately, you can take many steps to reduce these risks.
The best way to minimize risk for all parties involved is to insist on strong partnerships and monitoring tools. With everyone working together, and having the right tools and programs in place, you ensure that your freight is delivered on time and in proper condition.
Some of the questions that your partners and potential partners may ask, do you have the answers?
