South Africa, due to its vast geographical terrain and population ratio’s in cities, supports a complex network of logistics. The management of the flow of goods from point of origin to point of consumption involves a complex model and whichever one is deployed, the common threat of theft permeates every structure, irrespective of how simple or how complex.
Where goods move and where hands touch goods, the cargo is at risk, either as bulk theft exposure or smaller scale theft which can scale into millions if the theft patterns are not identified, deterred or plugged.
Tampering, theft, fraud, collusion, movement of contraband, security breach, non-compliance, operational inefficiencies & unauthorised access are the many faces of risk, this industry is exposed to. A cut-throat sector, which struggles to differentiate itself and secure lucrative contract business, logistics service providers should focus more on what they can proactively do, to minimize these risks, in serving their customer platforms.
Almost every aspect of the value chain could benefit from the implementation of security sealing devices supporting the integrity of the ‘good guys’ and tripping up the rogue activities of the ‘bad guys’.
Logistics service providers may include the upliftment of damaged stock from store level in their service offering. This onerous returns process can be easier to manage if a controlled, sealable, numbered bag process is implemented. Bag ‘n Bond™ It may not be your process to implement, but make it a contractual condition when signing up new customers. They’ll thank you for it later!
