Over 85 million of products were stolen from air, road, sea and rail freight supply chains in 46 countries in the Europe, Middle East & Africa (Emea) region in the first half of 2020, even with national Covid-related lockdowns restricting people and vehicle movements, according to the latest data from the Transported Asset Protection Association’s (Tapa) Incident Information Service (IIS). https://www.freightnews.co.za/article/lockdowns-fail-prevent-cargo-thefts-valued-eu85-million-emea-2020h1.
Theft cases of cargo, container happened when in parking mode. Most container tracking security solution providers have their own robust, powerful, versatile system to mitigate and prevent the risk of being stolen. Vuewo partners in Southeast Asia countries encountered some challenging issues in providing enhanced visibility of the containers before moved to customs supervision warehouse, and got aboard. During the period of parking mode, you never know when theft attempts to steal cargos inside the container. Cargo theft tampered on the container doors, illegally opened, and stolen valuable. But no tampering, intrusion alerts were received in the back office even though the container tracking solution combined with alarm buzzer, and E-lock were deployed. They found no backup battery powering up the complete system overnight when container, trailer is in parking mode. Actually some combined accessories like Magnetic lock or other E-lock consumes a lot of battery power, and it goes offline when engine switches off. Eventually our partners turned to Vuewo for customizable and reliable Auto-parking battery pack.
