9 Tips for Keeping Thieves’ Hands off Your Freight
In early August, an all-star team from across the ranks of Canadian trucking—fleet owners, drivers and representatives from the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA)—met face to face with Vic Toews, the federal Minister for Public Safety.
All member companies of the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association are welcome and encouraged to attend APTA Safety Council.
The role of the Safety Council:
- Recommends and promotes Safety within the trucking industry:
- Works with and assist other organizations and agencies in the Safety field;
- Promotes the positive image of Safety within the industry and to the public;
- Promotes programs to aid in the reduction of accidents and personal injuries;
- Promotes the importance of the drivers’ role in the trucking industry.
Best Practises To Avoid Theft
Truck, trailer and cargo theft have become a serious problem for the trucking industry. It is estimated that the losses in North America exceed $10 billion annually. Canadian Carriers have over $1 billion in losses and claims each year alone.
