€3.7m Stolen in the Netherlands

Netherlands story

In this issue, Vigilant looks at the latest TIS cargo theft intelligence available to companies looking to protect their supply chains in The Netherlands. In this article, we share information and data sourced from TIS within just 60 seconds of filtering its database…

Hopefully, you are not a victim of any of the 194 cargo thefts in The Netherlands which have so far been reported to the TAPA EMEA Intelligence System during 2022. This takes the number of recorded cargo crimes in The Netherlands to over 750 in the past 18 months … and this figure continues to grow with new losses reported to the Association on a daily basis. 

Only 19 of these 194 cargo thefts recorded an incident value, yet this still equates to €3,749,914 of stolen goods. When you consider the number of crimes reported to TAPA EMEA in The Netherlands – and across the EMEA region – are still estimated to be only a fraction of the level of incidents taking place across the country, the full value of cargo crime in the Netherlands is will clearly be far higher.

In the year-to-date, 8 of the recorded cargo incidents have been major losses of over €100,000, totalling €3,632,369 in losses or an average of €454,046 and, of those, we can report on three in Vigilant:

€500,000

On 18 July, unknown perpetrators broke into a truck parked at an Authorised 3rd Party Facility and stole perfumes worth €500,000 in Bergen op zoom, North Brabant.

€175,000

Offenders stole two trucks worth €175,000 in Kootwijkerbroek, Gelderland, on 7 March. The stolen trucks were, however, tracked via GPS and later recovered by German Police.

€129,369

At an Unclassified Parking Location in Asten, North Brabant, cargo thieves stole 114 computer monitors while the driver was sleeping inside the truck on 23 March.

In the first 8 months of 2022, cargo losses were recorded across 13 regions as criminals targeted supply chains across the country. Crimes in North Brabant accounted for 25.8% of all recorded incidents for the year-to-date. 67% of all crimes were reported in just three regions – North Brabant, South Holland and Limburg.

With an average loss value of €197,363for crimes reporting a value so far in 2022, TIS intelligence can help to provide vital information on high-crime areas to try to avoid, the types of modus operandi criminals are using, and the most sought-after products.

So, whichever country you’re operating in, using the TAPA EMEA Intelligence System (TIS) to support the resilience of your supply chains is quick, easy, informative – and may just stop you from becoming a victim of a cargo crime and suffering all the financial and reputational costs this can bring to your business.
