Roger Morris, NICB

Cargo theft takes up a lot of attention at the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), according to NICB Chief Communications Roger Morris. “Why steal from a bank and risk 30 years in prison for $10,000, when you can steal a load of cargo for a million dollars and very little chance of being caught?” Many hard-core thieves have moved from car theft to cargo theft.

The NICB works with transporters and member insurance companies to promote timely reporting, training, ensuring the loads are secure and tracked. Timely reporting can assist in tracking down stolen merchandise before it disappears on the black market.
