The Commercial Vehicle Crime Landscape

Commercial vehicles are subject to an ever increasing array of security threats. Today it is estimated that cargo crime costs UK business somewhere in the region of €11.6 billion per annum(1) and has increased by a staggering 41% in just 10 years(1). It is big business, carried out by highly organised criminal gangs.

This figure doesn’t take into account the estimated £1 billion of fresh produce(2) that is discarded every year as a result of load infiltration, caused by clandestine entrants illegally accessing vehicles in a bid to cross borders.

In the last couple of years the UK has also seen an eye-watering increase in van crime. Most notably, criminals are exploiting vehicle specific weaknesses that enable them to covertly bypass vehicle central locking to quickly gain entry to load areas whilst there has been a spike in so called ‘peal and steal attacks’ where doors are simply peeled back like a tin-can.

In short there is a significant threat to commercial vehicles, so what can you do to protect your vehicle and your business?
