Theft of commercial vehicles and their contents accounted for an average loss of $154,000 in the second quarter of 2016 with theft of the entire load being the most common. Reduce the risk of theft of the vehicle and contents by keeping a pulse on the fleet during driving and parking times. Tracking devices can be placed on trailers, containers, pallets or individual pieces of valuable equipment, deterring theft and vastly increasing the possibility of recovery. The ability to work with the authorities in recovering stolen items located via GPS makes recovery simple and cost effective.
