Every day, Europe exports hundreds of millions of euros worth of goods and imports hundreds of millions more. This makes the European Union a dynamic place to do business, but it is also an increasingly challenging market for any company without a supply chain security strategy.
Following TAPA EMEA’s Incident Information Service (IIS) Annual Report for 2017 showing a 10.3% increase in recorded cargo crimes in the region last year, 2018 got off to an ominous start with freight losses up by a further 18.5% year-on-year in January. In 2017, for the first time in one year, cargo thefts exceeded EUR100 million in the EMEA region.
Key figures for the region include averages of nearly 8 cargo thefts per day in EMEA, a loss of EUR 287 893 for every day of the year and 240 newly-recorded crimes per month.
These figures are for reported crimes only, so in reality, losses could be substantially higher. 44.78% of crimes reported were listed as unspecified or miscellaneous. The highest percentage of thefts by-products listed were Food & Drink at 9.8%.

SETTING THE RIGHT FOUNDATIONS
We start each project by determining exactly what you need;
-ONE, TWO, THREE OR EVEN MORE SECURITY ESCORT TEAMS
-ARMED OR UNARMED ESCORT TEAMS
HOW IT WORKS?
Our bespoke services include door to door secure escort with the ability for you to track your cargo in 24/7. Operational monitoring of everything that happens while your cargo is on the road or at the parking place we are doing from our OPS room in Linz (Austria).
It means we track and coordinate our teams and we provide them all the necessary information’s, or assistance in cooperation with the local emergency services (police, hospital, firefighters, etc.) if there is any type of incident/accident.
USUAL STANDARD PROCEDURE:
1. Once we receive details about your needs (security intervention or security escort), truck details (model, color, license plates of trailer and truck), driver’s details (name, phone numbers), exact time of loading / meeting time, etc., we will send our security team to meet with your drivers.
2. Our operatives will be on the spot at least one hour before loading time, they will find your truck and drivers, they will wait while the truck is loaded and then will took the pictures of the truck, trailer, seal number and CMR, which they will send to our OPS for your record.
3. While on the road, our operatives will constantly update our OPS about every single details on the road (changing the route, stops at the gas station, etc.) through our encrypted communication system, and also they will fill those details in the online report form, which we will send to you at the end of the task. Our vehicles are all equipped with the dash cam and every movement will be recorded too.
In case of any incident/accident, the situation will be recorded and provided to who it may concern.
In any case of medical emergency (traffic accidents, truck driver health problems) our security drivers are all qualified to provide first aid, and all our vehicles are equipped with the first aid kit and defibrillator, so they will assist.
4. When your cargo safely arrives at the destination point our security operatives will make sure to send us a picture of the unbroken seal. They will stay with your cargo till unloading is finished, and at the end they will take the details of the person who took over the cargo and who signed the CMR document.
We will provide you a final report with all that info at the end of the task.
SECURITY INTERVENTION Most of the security intervention services are taken when the truck has a ban on passing and when drivers need to rest at the LKW parking lot. Almost the same procedure is in that case. For video preview of intervention procedure please follow this LINK.
