GREEN BAY, Wis. — Schneider National has won CargoNet’s 2012 Best in Security Award. The inaugural award recognizes CargoNet members that have demonstrated best practices in cargo security through the use of the CargoNet program in addition to their own current security protocols.

CargoNet is the cargo theft database and information-sharing division of Verisk Crime Analytics. Verisk Crime Analytics is a provider of crime prevention services for retailers, manufacturers, logistics companies, equipment owners, and insurance companies and offers data and analytical support to law enforcement.

“Schneider’s credible reputation, the way it conducts business, and its extensive presence in the security and safety arena are highly impressive,” said Anthony Canale, general manager of CargoNet. “The company is heavily involved in industry-related security councils, seminars and regulatory matters. Schneider’s dedicated cargo security team is always connected to law enforcement and is continually seeking new ways to improve security protocols to protect valued freight.”

Schneider recently announced that it reduced cargo theft rates for the sixth consecutive year in 2012, including a 40% decrease in 2012 full-truckload thefts and a 50% reduction in total value per load stolen. Of Schneider’s nearly three million loads moved last year, Schneider had just eight load thefts.

“Schneider’s ongoing commitment to controlling risk has led to great success over the years,” said Walt Fountain, director of safety and enterprise Security for Schneider National. “We’re always looking for new and improved security solutions, not only for the company itself but also for shippers. From contingency planning and investment in security technology such as trailer-tracking devices to cargo security training and situational awareness for drivers, security is always at the forefront. It’s an honour to be recognized by CargoNet.”
