cargo theft statistics and trends

The prevalence of cargo theft incidents continues to have a material impact on stakeholders in the supply chain in South Africa.

Analysis of recorded incidents, increased data sharing agreements, collaborations, and widespread dissemination of findings all serve to improve our understanding of the underlying risks.
