The Joint Action Group on Lorry Theft (JAGOLT) has published two
leaflets to advise commercial vehicle operators and their drivers how to
avoid truck theft.
The scale of the problem is highlighted in the leaflet for operators:
eight out of every 1000 HGVs on the road are stolen every year and
only one in every 1000 is recovered
over one in four of the victims will lose business as a result
more than half of all trucks stolen are taken from operators�
Steer Clear of Truck Theft: security advice for commercial vehicle
operators gives advice to owners and managers on what they should do
to ensure their business does not fall victim to theft.
Secure drivers gives pointers on recruiting the right drivers,
driver training and company policy.
