Summary: One of the advantages of an expansive membership base is that the same information flows in from multiple sources and perspectives. Over the weekend, CargoNet received law enforcement sensitive intelligence about a possible cargo theft in the Southeastern region of the U.S. law enforcement officers were confident of the information they received, but could not yet identify a victim. Early Monday morning, a CargoNet client called to report the exact theft law enforcement was looking to identify. It was revealed that the theft involved a second member that was unaware of the situation, as the carrier hadn’t given notification to them yet.
The intelligence information CargoNet received allowed the Command Center to quickly identify the situation when the theft was reported early Monday morning and gave advance notification to another victim that wouldn’t have known about the theft otherwise.
