Cargo theft continues to cause considerable losses across supply chains, creating headaches and financial burdens for businesses of all sizes. The problem is especially acute during holidays like the 4th of July, when many businesses close down and transportation schedules are disrupted. This creates a window of opportunity for criminals, as seen in the past year when over $2.7 million in cargo was stolen from major ports in Florida alone.

The risk isn’t limited to Florida. Major ports in states like California and Texas also see a rise in cargo theft during holidays. As the 4th of July approaches, a familiar sense of dread washes over those in the logistics industry. They become painfully wary of the threat of stolen cargo, knowing that a successful heist can disrupt operations, damage reputations, and cost companies significant sums of money.
