St. Louis-Based Logistics Leader, Sunset Transportation Joins CargoNet; Increases Company Cargo Theft Prevention

Aug 21 2013, 9:00am CDT | by PR.com

Saint Louis, MO, August 21, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Sunset Transportation, a third-party logistics company (3PL), recently joined CargoNet® to help protect their customers from cargo theft. By using this high-tech system, Sunset is actively reducing their customers’ risk of theft. CargoNet’s theft prevention services aggregates data to quickly alert and deter theft situations across the country. In 2012, carriers reported 1,197 cargo theft incidents, which remained consistent with 2011 numbers.

Compared to the amount of freight being moved every day, this is not a high percentage of theft; unfortunately, even one stolen load is too many if it happens to you. Third party logistics companies have the responsibility of ensuring their customer’s cargo is transported as safely as possible every single day.

CargoNet’s system gathers data from a variety of sources, including law enforcement, transportation companies, manufacturers, retailers, and theft victims to compile a database and quickly pass theft alerts throughout their network. The predictive analysis features of CargoNet®provide theft trend analytics to help members predict theft patterns, and be aware of areas that are currently being hit harder with theft-related activities. If a theft does occur, CargoNet’s experienced staff and systems expedite the process of recovering the freight, and provide additional resources to back recovery efforts.

“Looking out for our customer’s best interests is very important to Sunset, and that includes keeping their cargo safe,” said Andrew Dunbar, Director of Operations for Sunset Transportation. “Cargo theft is often a crime of opportunity, but by actively paying attention, we can help slow it down, and hopefully eliminate it for our customers,” said Dunbar. Sunset continually looks for the best ways to help our customers, and this comes from all areas of the business, which unfortunately includes cargo theft.
