“The cost of crime over the last two years has absolutely skyrocketed” – Ian Baguley
S-winnus is a tracking company, specialised in IoT services in logistics. It provides customers IT innovation, security and efficiency.
“We offer our clients a combination of goods which will help them to secure their containers and track them throughout the world”,
explains Iain Baguley, Managing Director of S-winnus Europe and S-winnus Africa.
“The problem these days is the increase of crime, particularly in Europe”, he answers when we ask him how tracking fits into the preparation of a schedule for transporters, shipping companies and terminals. “The cost of crime over the last two years has absolutely skyrocketed. A few years ago, about 120,000 euros a year was being stolen out of containers. Lately it went up to above 20 billion euros a year.”
“These crimes happen through ports and through transport. Whether it is logistics, whether it is on the road and even in transport hubs”, Iain adds. “Criminals today are getting a lot wiser about what’s being transported in containers. Especially dry containers have always been a bit of a weak spot, but everybody in this industry seems to concentrate more on the reefer, due to the power you have over it.”
