ARLINGTON, Va., April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Trucking Associations (ATA) has announced that it has designated CargoNet® as an ATA Business Solutions Featured Product.
CargoNet delivers cargo theft prevention, response, and recovery solutions through a national, integrated, secure database system and controlled information-sharing network managed by crime analysts, security/loss prevention professionals, and system experts. The CargoNet solution includes a theft alert system, task force and investigations support, a tractor/trailer theft deterrence program, the TruckStopWatch® program, driver education and incentives, secondary-market monitoring and interdictions, crime trend analysis, loss control services, and training and education.
In support of the supply chain security efforts of ATA, ATA's Supply Chain Security & Loss Prevention Council (SCS&LPC), and their association members, ATA members will receive special member pricing for the CargoNet base product in 2011, 2012, and 2013.
"The CargoNet state of-the-art database, alert system, and deterrence tool were designed with significant industry and law enforcement input to specifically address supply chain security. The necessary time was taken, research done, and requisite contacts and investments made to build a comprehensive business solution for the trucking industry," said Susan Chandler, executive director of American Trucking Associations' SCS&LPC. "Of most importance to ATA members, the required 'firewalls' were built-in to protect and restrict access to cargo theft data. Only those authorized by the motor carrier may see the data it enters. That was critical for industry acceptance. Whether you're looking to have a network of law enforcement ready to respond to a cargo theft or the data to make educated decisions about where to invest your security dollars, CargoNet is a resource worth considering."
"It is a privilege to be selected as an ATA Business Solutions Featured Product by the American Trucking Associations. Because CargoNet is one of the main constituents in the supply chain arena, it is paramount that we continue to focus on the security needs and requirements of our transportation clients," said Maurizio Scrofani, president of CargoNet.
