The prevalence of cargo theft incidents continues to have a material impact on stakeholders in the supply chain in South Africa. Analysis of recorded incidents, increased data sharing agreements, collaborations, and widespread dissemination of findings all serve to improve our understanding of the underlying risks. Knowledge empowers stakeholders to take action, protecting their businesses and those they represent in the supply chain, and reducing the frequency and impact that this type of crime inevitably has.
Working extensively with partners in the Cargo Integrity Group (COA, GSF, ICHCA, TT Club & WSC), we have compiled ‘CTU Code – a quick guide’ as a route-map for the broad industry to engage more successfully with the CTU Code and to assist wider understanding of good packing practices.
