They have enhanced their compound’s security because of their specialized handling of high-value vehicles
Con-Truck Shipping, a Coop member in Hamburg, Germany, has enhanced the security of their compound by the implementation of a sophisticated surveillance system in the area of their high-value cargoes. “We are handling a lot of high valued vehicles and upping the security is the first step towards establishing the ultimate level of trust with our customers and freight forwarding partners.” says Mr. Dennis Lehnecke, the Sales Manager of Con-Truck Shipping.
They have installed a surveillance system on military standard, with cameras which come with night and heat vision are operational 24 hours, 7 days per week and 365 days per year, live observed by an operator. The area is protected against viewing from the outside, closed with fences all around, electric doors and lock concretes in front of each vehicle. Mr. Lehnecke further states, “As soon as a vehicle enters our ground it gets inspected and registered by one of our employees. After taking its pictures they are parked in the protected area. The high-value vehicles are directly covered by our cargo insurance and our enhanced security standards surely demonstrate our commitment to our clients’ interests.”
