USA emphasizes protection of the supply chain from departure to arrival. This process includes remaining in constant contact with dispatch centers, reporting progress at every stop along the way, keeping trip logs, documenting suspicious or unusual activity en route, monitoring national trends to know where cargo is most at risk and providing tracking mechanisms for all vehicles.

 "Not a single moment passes during the entire process without protective surveillance," said USA's Senior Vice President of National Accounts Alton Harvey.

Technology is advancing to match the rising number of cargo thefts, but it remains to be seen whether firms will invest in the technologies necessary to see supply chain thefts decrease in 2014.
