Yusen Logistics is sponsoring a new security initiative which aims to reduce lorry thefts in the Northamptonshire, UK area.
The campaign involves displaying a lorry trailer with multilingual crime prevention messages, to educate and remind drivers about the dangers of theft. The messages are written in English, Polish and Romanian, the top three driver nationalities targeted by criminals in the area.
Mark Harvey, Head of Security, Yusen Logistics UK and Simon Woods, Senior Security Manager, Yusen UK, pictured above left and right, have been closely involved with the campaign, sharing expertise with Northamptonshire Police and other colleagues in the RHA (Road Haulage Association) and National Crime Agency NaVCIS (National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service).
“By publicising freight crime we hope to keep safety at the forefront of drivers’ minds.” commented Mark Harvey.
The unveiling of the trailer featured on ITV local news and, to reach as many lorry drivers as possible, the trailer will be moving around the county in the next few months. This campaign is part of Operation Barric, a national task force combating freight crime, which Northamptonshire Police is now leading.
