Freightwatch International: Holiday Pharma Cargo Theft Awareness Alert

FreightWatch International, an industry leader in providing cargo theft intelligence through data collection, analysis, and customized reporting has issued a Holiday Cargo Theft Awareness Alert over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Freightwatch is encouraging shippers, manufacturers and transportation companies to remain aware of the increased security risks during the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Cargo theft tracking organizations are seeing continuing cargo theft activity, specifically targeting electronics, pharmaceuticals and other high end products. Shippers of these commodities in particular should avoid putting any loads on the road that will not travel directly to their destination.

All members of the pharmaceutical supply chain should be aware of the proliferation of pharmaceutical cargo theft and should be vigilant in their security and procurement procedures to protect their inventories from counterfeit, fraudulent, adulterated and stolen medications which pose a threat to end use consumers.
