On 16th September, Insurance Marine News reported comments of the Policy Director of the International Union of Marine Insurance. He said that increasingly popular among criminals were more innovative ways of stealing goods which took advantage of constantly growing online connectivity. “Instead of merely targeting a specific truck and its cargo, many criminals now take advantage of more sophisticated methods such as posing as legitimate transportation companies or jamming vehicle tracking systems”, he said. It also said that IUMI has issued a revised position paper that reflects the urgency with which this issue needs to be addressed and which outlines several measures to support improved and more effective cross-border coordination, and calls for a higher density of high-security, accessible and affordable parking spaces.
