   Dachser’s container security service recently assisted police in the recovery of a container with contents valued at more than $500,000 stolen from the Port of Callao in Peru.
    When the thieves opened the doors of the container, the system recognized it was not at the correct location, which triggered an alert to Dachser’s container security service team. The technology allowed the company and Peruvian police to track and trace the cargo, which prevented the thieves from stealing the contents and ensured the container was back on track toward its original destination.
    “The FBI reports that less than 20% of stole containers are ever recovered,” Dachser said. “Considered a low-risk, high-reward crime, container theft is typically organized by high-level thieves who have an infrastructure in place to quickly move stolen cargo from the container and onto the streets within a few short hours.”
    The container security service offered by Dachser tracks the location of the cargo in real time from any part of the world. In addition to sending alerts when the doors of the containers are opened without prior authorization, the system also records external light input and variations in temperature, humidity and ventilation levels to ensure the integrity of the cargo is monitored during transit.

   “We recognize that cargo thieves are very sophisticated, so we need to rely on technology rather than some of the traditional measures to keep the cargo safe,” said Guido Gries, managing director of Dachser Americas.

There’s a lot more accidents out there happening as a result of the lack of infrastructure investment in this country.

Drewry’s World Container Index, a composite of container freight rates on eight major routes to and from the U.S., Europe and Asia, was down 1.4% to $1,351.15 per 40-foot container as of June 13.
