"On a country‐by‐country basis, cargo theft threats, as other criminal activity, typically are rooted in social, economic and cultural conditions. The prevention of cargo theft on a global scale requires intimate knowledge of incident trends on a regional basis, as security programs and mitigation techniques do not always transfer successfully from region to region. Organizations must diligently gather intelligence and adapt their anti‐theft programs to address local threats. The purpose of this report is to outline the risk of cargo theft on a global level, highlighting significant countries in the global supply chain, to assist industry decision‐makers in determining their supply chain security needs."
