How To Protect Your Warehouse or Distribution Centre From Employee Theft

Distribution Centres and Warehouses are more liable to employee theft than any other business.  While you may focus on keeping criminals out of your warehouse, internal theft by company employees and contractors should also be considered.

I've seen many different types of warehouse and distribution centre theft, and one of the most common methods of theft in a warehouse environment involves a partnership between two employees, often a warehouse employee working with a delivery truck driver.  

Sometimes, theft is committed by an employee you would never suspect, as it can be common place for inventory to go missing if employees feel under-appreciated or underpaid, or perhaps just feel that the occasional product is a fringe benefit of working in your Distribution Centre.

As you know some distribution centres are massive, and can be very challenging to monitor, therefore properly protecting your facility from internal theft by implementing the following preventative measures is a good start to reducing your internal theft risk.

Automotive, RV and equipment dealerships are all attractive targets for would-be thieves, vandals and organized crime. 

Keeping the dealership compound, parts warehouse, storage areas, office and repair shop, all secure can be a big challenge.

Dealerships appeal to criminals who are looking to steal vehicles and to get hold of valuable vehicle parts such as catalytic converters, air bags, navigation systems, pick-up truck tailgates, tires, rims, and in most cases the damage they do to the vehicle to rip these items out can cost many thousands of dollars in repairs.

Warehouses and Distribution Centres pose a unique challenge for security due to their large size and complex layouts.  

Conventional alarms in a warehouse environment consist of motion sensors that detect movement at popular entry points such as doors, windows and in the aisles of inventory and goods. Unfortunately, this type of conventional, unverified alarm system will not protect your warehouse or distribution centre from criminals.  Why?
