Best Practices in Truck Transportation Security

PowerPoint presentation of Webinar delivered on 15 June 2010 (wih narrative)

Thank you for attending today’s Webinar on the topic of cargo security.  I’m Walt Beadling, President of the Cargo Security Alliance and Managing Partner of Cayuga Partners LLC, here today with Jim Barrett, President of Road Scholar Transport, a leader in High Security, High Velocity, Full Truck Load and Less Than Load transportation services, and a member of the CSA.

Our topic today is cargo security, including techniques, technologies and best practices to protect your employees, products, customer relationships and your company’s reputation.

Today’s presentation and discussion is a “Lunch and Learn”, scheduled for 30 minutes.  We’ll begin with a brief overview of the Cargo Security Alliance, a review of current threats to cargo security, the regulatory environment, and related trends.  Jim will take us through strategies and best practices for risk mitigation, including a discussion of the importance of collaboration, speed and visibility to supply chain security, combined with multi-layered security protocols that establish, maintain and prove a secure Chain of Custody.  We’ll have time for your questions at the end of the presentation.
