Many organisations have recently been facing major issues with the issues of securing their cargo and their trailers may this by nationally or internationally. However most of their issues seem to be surrounded by breach of their trailers. Within this blog Mega Fortris is going to inform you of some statistics surrounding the whole phenomenon of Transport and Logistics with the help from TAPA EMEA.
There have been more than 8000 recorded attempted trailer and container breaches by migrants that are bound for the UK from Calais. Every migrant found on a transport company vehicle receives heavy fines per migrant found. In the last 12 months fines issued have increased by 50% with more than 3,300 fines were issued by UK Border Force staff in 2014-15, up from 2,177 in 2013-14. These are only the recorded figures there have been far more attempts which have gone unrecorded making transportation very difficult for organisations to import and export goods from and to the UK.
