OTTAWA, Ont. –The Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA), working in partnership with the provincial trucking associations, law enforcement and representatives from the insurance industry, has launched a study to examine cargo crime activity in Canada and explore possible solutions.
“The purpose of this study is to identify the trends in cargo crime across the country, identify best practices in combating cargo crime, and develop an action plan for the private and public sector to address this important issue,” said CTA CEO David Bradley.
CTA officials said that though the law enforcement, insurance and carrier communities have all taken steps towards addressing the problem of cargo crime, the efforts are not coordinated, which has hindered the creation of a nationwide strategy to deal with the issue.
“This study will be the first of its kind in Canada and will provide CTA with an action roadmap to address cargo crime,” added Bradley.
The study will be completed this summer, with results to be discussed at a workshop in Toronto Oct. 5.
