You might think that using guards or technology to secure a truck during transport is only done for valuable cargo, like iPhones or Playstations…
You will be surprised!
Heavily Guarded Shampoo
For different clients, Ahlers managers the safe transportation of goods for different clients. Ahlers focuses on Russia, CIS, and China but operates outside of those regions as well. During the conversation LogisticsMatter had with Stefan about this, he explained that in those regions, trucks carrying simple day-to-day things like shampoo or cosmetics or cigarettes are usually well guarded.
The reason for this is because these goods are very common and easy to sell. Much easier than a truckload of iPhones or Playstations, which all have unique serial numbers that can be tracked.
Guards aren’t always effective, even if armed with Kalashnikovs, which can be the case in Russia and CIS. Criminals keep evolving their methods for stealing cargo. Just take a look at this video from the police in Romania.
Confronted with criminals with increasingly sophisticated methods, Ahlers developed their own security systems to protect cargo en route. In this episode Stefan talks about securing cargo and the security solution Ahlers developed. He also shares his thoughts on future technological developments in securing transportation.
