GREEN BAY, Wis. — Schneider announced today that it reached a significant milestone in 2014.
The company claims it had zero cargo thefts last year – a notable accomplishment considering it moved more than 4 million loads in 2014.
According to Schneider’s vice-president of enterprise security, Brian Bobo, the company beat the cargo theft odds because of its holistic, layered approach to security.
“To be successful, we can’t rely solely on doing one thing flawlessly,” noted Bobo. “Yes, we have the right technologies in place, but it’s just as important that our drivers and operations teams are consistently doing the right things.”
He also emphasized the importance of education drivers and owner/operators.
“We apply a three-prong approach: We address expectations during on-boarding, we regularly communicate the locations and types of thefts that are occurring and we incorporate cargo theft preventable measures into our quarterly training sessions.”
CargoNet added that Schneider’s year-over-year drop in thefts is a rather remarkable accomplishment.
“Schneider has shown theft decline since the beginning of our relationship in 2011,” said CargoNet’s Anthony Canale, general manager. “Having no cargo thefts over the last year sets the benchmark for the rest of the industry to work toward.”
