Memorial Day Weekend Loss Prevention Tips

Be on the alert this holiday weekend. Freight Watch reports that during Memorial Day Weekends in the past, the FreightWatch International Supply Chain Intelligence Center (FWI SCIC) has recorded elevated theft levels up to 40% higher than non-holiday weekends.

Here are some prevention tips for the upcoming holiday from Freight Watch:

  • Ensure security protocols are up-to-date and in line with industry best practices for both in-transit and warehouse operations.
  • Confirm that a given receiver’s hours of operation for the holiday weekend are consistent with scheduled delivery times.
  • Covert GPS tracking and active monitoring of high-value shipments are highly recommended.

Be safe and have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
