FreightWatch International, an industry leader in providing cargo theft intelligence through data collection, analysis, and customized reporting, released a pharmaceutical cargo theft alert.

Two trailers loaded with an undisclosed value of pharmaceuticals were taken from a trucking company parking lot in Memphis, Tennessee between 10 p.m. Thursday, May 20th and 8 a.m. Friday, May 21st.

Both trailers had been loaded at a local pharmaceutical distribution center, moved to the trucking company lot and dropped unattached to a tractor.

One of the trailers was returned to the transportation provider's lot after being taken and the pharmaceuticals removed.

The issue of pharmaceutical cargo theft energizes the need for material screening of products within the supply chain, from manufacturer to dispenser, to properly protect consumers everywhere.
