Schneider says it nearly eliminated cargo theft in 2015

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Schneider has announced that of the company’s more than three million loads moved last year, 99.999% were theft-free.

In an age when cargo thieves have run rampant, Schneider said it has incorporated multiple overlapping elements to prevent theft, with carriers and shippers working together from the beginning of a shipment to its final delivery.

Schneider employs multiple technologies, procedures and training to strengthen the supply chain and achieve best results.

“The technologies and processes we employ to keep freight safe are absolutely best-in-class, but our secret weapon is the careful and observant driver force we have behind the wheel of every load,” noted Brian Bobo, vice-president of enterprise security. “Schneider drivers’ skill-sets are kept sharp through a three-prong approach: We thoroughly train during on-boarding, we regularly communicate the locations and types of thefts that are occurring industry-wide and we incorporate theft prevention techniques into our quarterly training sessions.”

Schneider said CargoNet’s annual theft analysis shows the industry lost 890 loads in 2015, averaging $185,297 per incident.

“Schneider continues to lead by example with their layered approach to cargo security,” says Anthony Canale, general manager at CargoNet. “Through their understanding of technology, intelligence and application of cargo theft trend data, they truly have a unique safety and security application. Their use of CargoNet’s theft prevention and recovery network is just one example of their commitment to securing their customers’ freight. We are honored to be a part of Schneider’s continued success.”
