Boston and Bothell, Wash. - SC-integrity and Lexington Insurance Co., a member of American International Group Inc. (AIG), are working together to encourage motor carriers and shippers to reinforce their risk management activities to concentrate on the issue of cargo theft.SC-integrity, a Web-based technology and data solutions company, and Lexington believe a significant reduction in theft losses can be achieved through a combination of security driven loss prevention techniques and a new cargo theft protection device. Called SC-tracker, the state-of-the-art tracking and monitoring technology is a rechargeable, portable tracking unit that is buried within the cargo and not installed on the trailer, which allowis the cargo to be tracked from point of origin to point of destination remotely over the Web. While in transit, the tracking unit reports its location every 30 seconds for over a week. The monitoring system will immediately notify security personnel if the cargo is being stolen.
"Cargo theft costs supply chain companies over $50 billion in losses every year," says Denis duNann, CEO of SC-integrity. "Our relationship with Lexington offers proven technology and services to the supply chain industry, which has been waiting for a solution to combat this growing problem."
