External Thefts At Distribution Centres & Warehouses.

External thefts occur when individuals who are not direct employees, contractors, or authorised visitors of the company commit theft. These individuals lack legitimate reasons to be on the premises and typically enter the warehouse or distribution centre with the sole intention of stealing.
As they have no affiliation with the company, their presence poses a significant security risk and highlights the importance of implementing robust security measures to prevent unauthorised access and deter theft incidents.
By addressing external theft threats proactively, companies can protect their assets and maintain a secure working environment for employees and authorised personnel.

Reduce Risk By Removing Opportunity

Compromised Warehouse Staff and Delivery Drivers

Often corrupt warehouse employees work in cahoots with dishonest truck drivers to steal from their company.
This can be a particularly costly scenario as the warehouse employee holds the knowledge of which items are coming and going.
They can load the stolen items in outgoing shipments and can fraudulently modify paperwork to cover their tracks.
The delivery driver could simply drive away with the merchandise from the site undetected with supporting documentation.
Collaboration between warehouse employees and delivery drivers is a major concern for many industries.
This type of theft is responsible for millions of pounds of losses each year.
