According to the FBI, cargo theft costs us between $15 and $30 billion annually.
With the average freight on a trailer being worth $20,000 to well over a $1,000,000 and the penalties for these crimes being minimal, it is not surprising that cargo theft is so attractive to large crime organizations.
Due to the ports in these states and the ability to easily get the product “out,” Florida, Texas, Georgia and California remain hot spots for cargo theft. However, because Florida has recently begun to focus on this issue some of the criminal activity has moved to Georgia.
Keep your eyes and ears open, Stay Alert
