TT Brief: operating a secure warehouse
Are your warehouse operations as secure as they could be?
According to global cargo theft reports issued jointly by TT Club and BSI, thefts from facilities and warehouses accounts for approximately 25% of recorded theft incidents. Inevitably, this varies by country and region but is influenced by implemented levels of both procedural and physical security measures.
While there are more obvious physical measures such as perimeter fences, CCTV and barriers, effective security includes procedural aspects such as ensuring due diligence when hiring personnel, issuing security badges, issuing company uniform and information security. However, there is no one size fits all solution to warehouse security and much will depend on the cargoes being stored and the frequency of cargo movements.
