An ounce of prevention: There's no fail-safe method for protecting DCs against theft, but these precautions can minimize the risk

from DC Velocity

Conventional wisdom holds that cargo is most vulnerable to theft when it's on the road, which is why so many security protocols focus on trucks and other vehicles. But lately we've seen an uptick in cargo thefts — including the disappearance of entire trailer loads — on distribution center property.
