Episode 3 - Depot security
In episode three of TT's supply chain security podcast, Mike Yarwood talks again to David Thompson about depot security and how to mitigate the risk of theft.
Depots are a critical node in supply chains all over the world. Such locations might function as an operating centre for trucks, trailers and containers, a temporary storage facility as well as a secure area to park vehicles. For those with intentions of stealing cargo, transport depots provide an excellent one stop shop opportunity of an accumulation of valuable assets.
