A new report from Freightwatch, entitled 2011 US Cargo Theft Report, finds that theft of cargo along the supply chain has increased to record levels. The level of cargo theft rose 8.3 percent in 2011, but the report says the actual value of each theft has decreased. In 2010 the average cost of a theft was USD468,500, but this fell 31 percent to USD319,000 in 2011. The majority of cargo thefts, approximately 87 percent, are those that involve full trailers, rather than other incidents. The majority of cargo thefts involve containers of electronics and food/drink.
