With pharma cargo theft on the rise, Thanksgiving can be a risky holiday

While next week's long Thanksgiving holiday will be enjoyed by most workers in the U.S., logistics security firm FreightWatch International reminds companies that thieves use the added time to target warehouses and over-the-road trucks. Over last year's holiday there were a dozen reported cargo thefts that took nearly a $1 million worth of products, including two fictitious pickups in California. The company recently reported that pharma cargo theft took a big spike in the last quarter. Companies are warned to make sure their security protocols are up-to-date and enforced. Release | More
