Just imagine the scenario. The driver arrives on time to pick up your truckload of designer clothing destined for a high-end fashion outlet. You’ve checked the paperwork and the truck has all the right company markings. In fact everything is good. As the truck rolls away you breathe a sigh of relief that you made the delivery slot on time and congratulate the team on a job well done. However 24 hours later you get a call from the depot at your destination asking where the delivery is. The truth is that it’s never going to arrive instead the criminals who drove off with it are swiftly heading to the black-market where they stand to make a serious profit.
This is the harsh reality for all too many companies who are under increasing pressure to make timely deliveries. Where shippers scramble to move their stock, freight forwarders might be forced to deal with carriers that they aren’t familiar with. This is the perfect opportunity for organised criminals to step in. Unfortunately false driver scams are becoming all too common. With this in mind, if you’re worried about protecting your freight then high level security couriers can help.
A high-level security courier service will offer much more in the way of guarantees that your freight will arrive at its destination both on time and tamper-free because they provide a series of covert or overt vehicle escorts and close monitoring depending upon the needs of the client. Any number of operatives can be deployed as escorts depending upon the threat and most companies will also look at reconnaissance and route planning if necessary to ensure a smooth, problem-free journey and final delivery. This includes vulnerable places such as designated fuel and food stops or travelling through built up areas.
High level tracking
Many security couriers also offer what’s known as a high-level tracking service. The clients are provided with a tracking feed which they can then access via the internet. This means that they can log on and monitor the process at any time of the day or night, wherever they are in the world.
So how else can a high-level courier service help?
Aside from the obvious that your goods arrive both on time and in perfect ‘tamper-free’ condition, any organised criminal gang is likely to think twice before relieving themselves of your high-value freight. This in turn keeps insurance premiums low as en-route theft becomes a thing of the past and therefore ultimately, it’s going to save you money, time, and a great deal of stress.
