How The Cargo Thieves Stole Christmas

We know that cargo theft often peaks during the holiday season. A recent analysis by CargoNet found cargo thieves stole more than 9 million dollars worth of goods over Thanksgiving weekends alone between 2013 and 2017!

A contributing factor is that warehouses, truck stops and parking lots are often fully or partially closed with smaller, holiday staffing. Thieves use this opportunity to take anything from food and beverages to household goods. Unattended trucks have proved to be a tempting target over previous holiday weeks.

Cargo theft incidents occur all across the country. In fact, in this analysis 15 different cargo theft incidents occurred there! With consumer confidence (and holiday spending) up, this year, we can expect enterprising cargo thieves to continue targeting the warehouses, truck stops and parking lots that are a part of our lives.


We can't make cargo thieves hearts grow in size, but we can get smart with our own actions to better protect the holiday gifts and vital goods that we transport every day from cargo theft.
