Distribution and Logistics
Securitas recognizes the imperative for a comprehensive security solution in the fast-paced and ever-changing world of logistics and distribution.
The need for Effective Security
Transport and logistics companies of all sizes and across all transportation modes face a variety of threats, including theft, damage, and smuggling. Security is essential for these businesses, from their depots to their vehicles in transit. Losses from theft and smuggling can be devastating, and criminals are constantly developing new methods to exploit vulnerabilities.
Transport and haulage businesses often have complex needs, requiring a multi-layered security system. With fuel and cargo theft on the rise, it is more important than ever to know who is on your site and when.
Here are some of the key security considerations for transport and logistics companies. Prioritizing effective security and access control measures is not only necessary for protecting assets but also for ensuring the long-term success and sustainability of these businesses.
- Physical security: This includes measures such as perimeter security, access control, and intrusion detection systems.
- Cargo security: This includes measures such as seals, locks, and tracking devices.
- Vehicle security: This includes measures such as GPS tracking, immobilizers, and alarm systems.
- Personnel security: This includes measures such as background checks, training, and awareness programs.
- Information security: This includes measures such as data encryption, access control, and cybersecurity awareness programs.
The free market in Europe and the increasing globalization of the logistics industry have created new security challenges. The increase in transport capacity, the growing quality demands of customers, and stringent legal regulations, combined with cross-border differences and increased risks, pose a complex challenge to the security of the supply chain.
It is important to note that security is equally important at all levels of the supply chain, from the cradle to the grave.
Here are some of the specific security challenges that logistics companies face in the open borders environment:
- Increased risk of smuggling and trafficking: Open borders can make it easier for criminals to smuggle contraband and traffic people across borders.
- Increased risk of terrorism: Open borders can also make it easier for terrorists to move around and carry out attacks.
- Increased risk of cyberattacks: Logistics companies are increasingly reliant on technology, which makes them more vulnerable to cyberattacks.
- Increased complexity of the supply chain: Open borders have led to more complex supply chains, which can make it more difficult to track goods and identify potential security risks.
