Supply Chain Risk II

[ May 26, 2021   //   ]

International transport insurer TT Club has produced a second series of its podcast giving  guidance to operators on managing their protection against theft and fraud. In Series 2 of its successful podcast, TT Live, risk management experts discuss current trends in criminal activity that target cargo in transit and storage. The six episodes cover aspects such as fraud, the insider threat, theft strategies, secure parking for vehicles and the targeting of depots and warehouses.

All the new episodes, along with Series 1, and the extensive library of written advice are available as free downloads on the insurer’s Supply Chain Security webpage

TT Live is also available on Spotify, Apple, Google and many other podcast streaming services.

Among identified trends apparent during the recent lockdowns has been a move away from the theft of higher value, more easily traced goods, such as electronics and domestic appliances, to food and drink commodities that have had a ready market. Thieves have also noted and exploited the congestion in the supply chain that has increased the use of temporary warehousing and storage sites that are not always as secure as established premises. The second series of TT’s podcast addresses these along with a range of other risk pinch points.
