The most targeted commodities for cargo theft are listed in the graph below.
Cargo theft continues to be a major issue in the United States. Latest reports show over $160 Million in goods were reported stolen in the US in 2014. Protecting your supply chain has never been more important. The criminal element is shifting towards product and cargo theft due to increased mandatory sentencing for trafficking illegal drugs and weak penalties for cargo theft. In most states there is not a reporting difference made between a theft of a $500 trailer or a trailer loaded with product valued at $1,000,000, the penalty is the same so the reward definitely outweighs the risk.
