90 seconds…that’s all it takes for thieves to steal your cargo.
According to Cargo Security Alliance, perpetrators will move onto softer targets if they cannot defeat a truck’s security system in 90 seconds or less.
When you think of lost or stolen freight, you think “cost.” Not only do you suffer from inventory replacement costs, but the cost of recovery operations, restocking, recall , and worse, relationships/credibility with clients. All this can happen in just 90 seconds.
One thing’s for sure, it would take a thief longer than that to break into one of Road Scholar Transport’s tractor trailers.
Road Scholar makes sure that each driver hired is legitimate. We conduct a drug test on every new hire and again on 50% of drivers every year. We also do ten year background checks to ensure that our drivers maintain a clean record.
Our property is setup with a digital surveillance system and with bright colors and roof tracking decals, our trucks are readily recognizable, making them harder to steal and easier to find.
If that’s not enough, we have bolt and cable seals, tamper evident tapes and seals, and truck, trailer, and container locks and seals to prevent theft. Our cargo cam keeps an eye on your freight at all times to make sure nothing goes wrong.
Let’s not forget about tracking devices. Road Scholar has you covered with covert assisted GPS cargo tracking and real-time tracking. All of our reefers and power units are enabled with tracking devices such as SkyBitz, Qualcomm, and Airsis. SkyBitz allows for electronic door monitoring, censoring and sending reports or alerts of door openings and closures. Qualcomm provides panic buttons to prevent operation of the vehicle to ensure that a truck is not stolen. In addition to that, Airsis gives a fleet map (down to the street level) that not only tells the location history, but current location of the tractor trailer. These locations are reported every hour when moving and once every 24 hours when idle.
So in order to prevent a dent in your wallet and loss of credibility that you worked so long to build with your customers, consider using Road Scholar Transport for all your transporting needs. For more information visit www.roadscholar.com.
