Prepare for increased cargo theft activity over Labor Day weekend
Cargo theft recording firm SensiGuard is warning trucking companies and drivers of increased activity by cargo theft rings over holiday weekends, specifically the upcoming Labor Day weekend.

In Labor Day weekends between 2015 and 2019, the firm recorded 2.2 thefts per day, which is 15% higher than non-holidays during the year.

The firm also warns that, coming on the heels of Hurricane Laura on the Gulf Coast, carriers and shippers of building supplies “should be particularly vigilant.”
