Coughlin Cargo Crime

Cargo crime—including theft, fraud, and the passage of contraband through commercial shipping lanes—poses an enormous threat to security and the economy. By understanding the current methods and operations of those who attack the supply chain, industry professionals can design effective security plans and law enforcement can properly investigate these crimes. Cargo Crime: Security and Theft Prevention is drawn from the author’s personal experiences as a law enforcement detective and supervisor and as a regional security manager for a large multimode transportation and logistics company. The book reviews emerging trends, identifies criminal tactics, discusses law enforcement response to cargo theft, and presents best practices to help businesses avoid victimization by cargo thieves.

Topics include:

The various modes of freight transportation and the differences in cargo crime activity in each mode
Methods of operation used by organized crime syndicates and narcotic smugglers
The effective use of public and private information-sharing partnerships to thwart criminal activities
Known profiles consistent in over 90 percent of contraband shipments

Cargo crime is a critical concern of freight transportation operators, manufacturers, shippers, insurers, law enforcement, and consumers. This book arms professionals charged with protecting the supply chain with essential information that can help them investigate and uncover criminal activity and develop a first class cargo security program.


Transportation, logistics, supply chain security, and risk management professionals; homeland security professionals; law enforcement officers; students in these programs; and FDA, TSA, and USDA officials.
