In 2010, CargoNet, a cargo theft prevention and recovery network, performed a self-insured impact study and found that cargo theft costs 10 times the goods stolen. According to their study, “You have to reimport [the product] or rush shipment. You’ve got to do air freight and that’s more costly. Then you have drayage from the port, so if you lose $200,000 in cargo, you need to generate $2 million in sales to offset it.”
