Safety and security are critical components of logistics, transport, and supply chain management, yet recent statistics reveal a concerning reality.

According to the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA), South Africa has witnessed over 40,000 crimes impacting supply chains in the past year alone, based on data from the South African Police Service (SAPS).

These incidents encompass a spectrum of offences, ranging from high-profile truck hijackings and cash-in-transit robberies to common robbery, burglaries, and stock theft. In 2023, TAPA recorded a staggering 41,120 new incidents in Africa, with 99% of these occurring in South Africa.

Moreover, South Africa ranks fourth globally in cargo theft rates, as per the Cargo Crime Monitor. Items of significant value such as phones, electronic goods, and food and drink consistently feature in the top five list of stolen goods.

In response to these alarming trends, the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport: South Africa (CILTSA) is hosting a half-day seminar on navigating safety and security risks in the logistics, transport, and supply chain industries. Scheduled for 22 May in Sandton, Johannesburg, this event aims to equip professionals with the requisite knowledge and tools to identify, assess, and mitigate safety and security risks within their operations.

  19. I have seen a lot of useful elements on your web page about pcs. However, I have the view that laptop computers are still not quite powerful more than enough to be a sensible choice if you typically do things that require plenty of power, for instance video touch-ups. But for world-wide-web surfing, word processing, and quite a few other common computer functions they are just fine, provided you may not mind your little friend screen size. Thank you sharing your opinions.

  20. I have taken note that of all types of insurance, medical health insurance is the most questionable because of the clash between the insurance policy company’s need to remain profitable and the buyer’s need to have insurance cover. Insurance companies’ commissions on health plans are extremely low, hence some providers struggle to earn profits. Thanks for the concepts you talk about through this web site.
