Use of cargo cameras is on the rise

July 5, 2022

Cargo thieves often conduct surveillance outside of distribution centers and follow trucks in hopes the driver will go directly to a truckstop for dinner or road snacks, a shower or just to rest before hitting the road. And that’s when they strike, stealing loads of goods that are often more valuable than the trailer itself.

And long weekends – like the recent Fourth of July holiday – make freight even more susceptible to theft. While there are multiple devices to help prevent theft, cargo camera solutions are being developed to help retrieve lost loads in addition to helping trucking companies increase capacity, among other benefits.
