Cincinnati, OH – Total Quality Logistics (TQL), one of the nation’s largest freight brokerage firms, with more than $1.6 billion in annual revenues, has been awarded the CargoNet® “Best in Cargo Security” award for its cargo theft prevention efforts in 2013. CargoNet is a division of Verisk Crime Analytics, a Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK) company.
CargoNet helps transportation companies, shippers, and other supply chain stakeholders prevent cargo theft and improve recovery rates through secure and controlled information sharing among theft victims, their business partners, and law enforcement.
“We thank TQL for using the CargoNet program the way it was designed to be used. We can provide intelligence, tips, best practices, training, and analytics, but we can’t force our business partners to apply them. In TQL’s case, its team has embraced the program and assisted in its development,” said Anthony Canale, general manager, CargoNet.
TQL is one of the largest freight brokerage firms in the nation, connecting shippers who have truckload freight that needs to be moved with quality carriers who have the capacity to move it. In 2013, TQL moved more than 815,000 loads of freight.
“Cargo theft is a serious problem across the country, and it’s critically important that we do everything in our power to protect our customers’ freight. We’re proud that our team’s efforts have been recognized with this award,” said TQL Executive Vice President Kerry Byrne.
TQL also recently wrote an article with tips that shippers and receivers can use to steer clear of would-be produce thieves.
