In 2020, stolen goods from warehouses made up 14% of all global cargo theft. Thieves looking for easy profit have shifted more focus on warehouses, fulfillment centers and distribution centers, which are now seen as prime targets. This ever-increasing problem stems from many factors. One such contributing element is the fact that these crimes are seen as low-risk, high-reward since they carry minor criminal penalties. 

 

How can companies around the world better guard against unauthorized access, commercial burglary and internal theft? First, it’s advised to employ multiple approaches. This often includes utilizing both advanced technology and trained security personnel to properly monitor the footage onsite and remotely. The hardware included in this monitoring system should consist of high-tech cameras, lighting, motion sensors, alarms and glass break detection. The building should also have reinforced windows and locked doors that require the use of electronic keys or key codes for entry. Similarly, it’s recommended to strategically design the layout of storage rooms and locked cages so that they are located in a clear line of sight. 

 

Although the costs of upgrading may seem daunting, the benefits of doing so often outweigh the investment while working to put everyone’s mind more at ease. For further examples of preventive measures and security upgrades, please see the accompanying resource.
