U.S. Ports Activity & Security - An Infographic

// posted on Friday, March 08, 2013

U.S. ports are tempting targets criminals looking to smuggle or steal goods and for terrorists bent on killing large numbers of people, grabbing media attention, and disrupting the U.S. economy.

Port, ferry, and cruise-ship terminals are often located in highly congested areas where large numbers of people live and work. Given the importance of foreign trade to the U.S. economy, an attack that shuts down a major American port for even a few days could devastate the regional economy served by that port.

With billions in goods and hundreds of thousands of people moving in and out of U.S. waterways every day, the incredible pressure on security personnel to constantly safeguard vessels, harbors, ports, waterfront facilities, and cargo from threats can seem overwhelming. But through some ground-breaking technology such as smart cameras with behavioral analytics, ports across the country are discovering there is an easier, more effective and cost-efficient way to protect themselves and the nation.

Review the infographic below and then email us at info@cgiprotects.com or call 504-483-7811 to find how this new technology can help put your port's security among the most advanced in the nation. (You can download a high resolution PDF of the graphic by clicking here.)

Is your cargo hitting the black market? - An infographic

The computer or smartphone that you're reading this on right now, the paper on which you print customer reports and even that medicine you're taking all hit the road at some point and is part of more than $650 billion in revenue.

Since 80 percent of all U.S. communities receive their goods exclusively by truck, cargo theft has many victims, including you:

  • Employees (i.e., drivers, warehouse workers) who can be hurt during an armed hijacking or robbery,
  • retailers who lose merchandise,
  • consumers who pay as much as 20 percent more to make up for the theft,
  • state and local governments who lose sales tax revenue,
  • and even insurance companies, manufacturers, and shipping companies.

Proper procedures, training and security measures can help ensure cargo gets to its intended destination without incident, but what kind of solutions are there and how do they help?

Review the infographic below and then email us at info@cgiprotects.com or call 504-483-7811 to see if your trucking business or company qualifies for a free security assessment. (You can download the graphic by clicking here.)
