The ongoing threat of terrorism leaves the supply chain particularly vulnerable. Shipping ports, rail, air cargo, and trucking are under increasing scrutiny, and threats are commonplace. Drawing from 30-plus years in transportation, counterterrorism, and security, Edward Badolato equips managers with tools to effectively manage the risks. This book offers invaluable insight into security threats, the new norms with U.S. Homeland Security, post 9/11 security initiatives, and much more. It helps organizations assess their own vulnerability, walks readers through the process of developing a cargo security program, and discusses prevention strategies. Covering all facets of cargo security for land, sea and air, it examines storage, container inspection, personnel screening, shipping and receiving controls, investigations, theft, organized crime, fraud, x-rays, tracking systems, and much more. Security checklists and audit guides are included as well. Cargo in Jeopardy is an excellent resource for anyone involved in shipping and receiving goods.
