The logistics industry has been experiencing a significant boom in recent years, with the demand for efficient and reliable transportation services increasing rapidly. However, this growth has also brought with it a rise in criminal activities such as theft, hijacking, and cargo smuggling. These illegal activities not only cause financial losses to businesses, but also pose a significant threat to the safety and security of people involved in the transportation process.
One of the most notorious examples of such criminal activities is portrayed in the movie “Goodfellas,” which depicts the story of a mafia group that stole goods, trucks, and hijacked airport cargo shipments. While the movie is a work of fiction, it reflects the reality of the challenges faced by the logistics industry of today.
With the advancements in technology, businesses now have access to various tools and solutions that can help them better control and mitigate these risks. One such solution is the use of GPS tracking devices, which can be installed in vehicles to monitor their movements and ensure they are following the designated routes. This not only helps in preventing theft, but also enables businesses to track their shipments in real-time and provide accurate delivery estimates to their customers.
Another technology that is gaining popularity in the logistics industry is blockchain. This technology provides a secure and transparent way of tracking goods throughout the supply chain, making it difficult for criminals to manipulate or steal shipments. By using blockchain, businesses can create a tamper-proof record of each transaction, ensuring that all parties involved in the transportation process are held accountable for their actions.
Apart from technology, businesses can also take several other measures to better control the risks associated with logistics operations. These include conducting thorough background checks on employees involved in transportation, implementing strict security protocols at warehouses and loading docks, and partnering with reputable logistics providers who have a proven track record of safety and reliability.
While the logistics industry continues to grow and evolve, it is crucial for businesses to remain vigilant and take proactive measures to mitigate the risks associated with transportation operations. By leveraging technology and implementing robust security measures, businesses can ensure that their shipments are delivered safely and securely, while also protecting themselves from financial losses and reputational damage.
So what else can you do
Locomobi World’s Truck Yard and Fleet management systems have been making great strides in improving logistics processes over the last few years. Logistics companies deal with a constant inward and outward flow of traffic as their fleets either depart for their next haul, or return to the yard after delivering their payloads.
This can make fleet and truck management an arduous, time-consuming task, with plenty of room for errors and omissions. It can also slow down the flow of traffic, as drivers and security staff take the necessary time for validations and authentications. However, with the WorldStream truck yard and fleet management system software, security and efficiency can both be exponentially improved in your truck yard.
A yard can be substituted with anything from a parking lot to a construction site that has very expensive equipment to Border Crossings and Ports worldwide.
WorldStream Truck Yard and Fleet Management tracks drivers, trucks and other vehicles on their exit and entry into your compound. WorldStream Cloud Portal and LetMeThrough are the main components of the truck fleet management system, and both are powered by the simple but potent and innovative license plate recognition system LPR Express. This of course can be linked to our road and highway systems.
However, WorldStream vehicle fleet management system does not only track vehicles—it tracks drivers, too. The LPR system scans the front plate and the driver is then contacted via SMS on the number linked to that plate. The driver then responds to the SMS and access is then granted if driver and plate match up. Cabs, drivers and trailers can all be tracked and authenticated through the system. Fleet management staff can add and remove drivers on the fleet truck management system, arrange long and short-term permits, and update permission levels for each cab, trailer or driver.
In addition AI Computer Vision sees the cab , the trailer to ensure these all match with all documents. Because this is done in seconds the process is quick ,accurate and real time for better response and high prevention rates .
Blockchain has also been tackled by Locomobi with its World Secure Software …a separate subject matter!
It appears that Locomobi World is making it very difficult for Goodfella gangs to succeed !
