TORONTO, Ont. — Three different member firms have experienced truck hijackings over the past two weeks at Toronto Airport, reports the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA).
In all cases it appears that the hijackers knew of the truck contents, ‘stalked’ the trucks and patiently waited until the driver would leave the truck for a short period of time. In one or two cases, the ignition key was even left in the truck.
“It appears that it is a well organized team and we strongly recommend to sensitize drivers to the increased hijacking threat. Ensure that vehicles are well locked and always under supervision whilst loaded with valuable goods,” CIFFA warned its members.
