The cargo theft prevention and recovery network

 Twitter LinkedIn Facebook


Retailers encounter theft when:

  • the retailer is liable for a stolen load through contractual terms such as “domestic collect” or “direct import”
  • the retailer operates a private fleet
  • shortage is detected upon delivery
  • a theft causes indirect business losses where goods are not available for sale
  • competing channels sell stolen or diverted cargo

Retailers maximize CargoNet’s benefits by:

  • becoming CargoNet members, if using a private fleet
  • recommending to the motor carriers and fleet owners they use to become CargoNet members in order to avoid supply-chain interruption
  • reporting losses to CargoNet when they detect a shortage upon delivery

CargoNet helps retailers:

  • quickly recover stolen cargo
  • identify and deter pilferage in the supply chain
  • improve operational efficiencies
