Abstract

The risk of cargo and vehicle theft is a serious problem in European road transportation affecting all European countries and all partners of the transport chain. According to several studies and reports (TAPA EMEA 2010, Ekwall 2009, Europol 2009, van den Engel and Prummel 2007, ECMT 2002), cargo theft in European road freight transport chains has increased in recent years and cargo theft has become very diligently organized. Cargo theft in road transportation negatively affects the partners in supply chains in various ways. It leads, for example, to the occurrence of disruptions and failures of goods deliveries, which result in additional costs. Besides, the demonstration and provision of risk reducing activities become a prerequisite for co-operation in supply chains and security requirements in contracts and competitive bids are more often defined (TAPA EMEA 2010).
