Food thieves target truckers

[ February 24, 2020   //   ]

Trucks continue to bear the brunt of cargo crime, says insurer the TT Club in its second annual report on worldwide cargo theft, published in conjunction with supply chain intelligence specialist, BSI.

Top commodities stolen were food and beverages representing 28% of all reported thefts in comparison with 19% in 2018.

TT Club’s Mike Yarwood said: “Thefts either of, or from road vehicles most frequently occurred while in transit, in rest areas or an unsecured parking location. These accounted for 60% of those thefts reported. He is particularly keen to draw attention to the dangers of  informal parking and encourages the provision of more secured truck stop facilities.
