Considerations for the award include factors such as: a willingness to commit resources to security; standard operating procedures and best practices; and, the scope of utilization and support for the CargoNet program.

A CargoNet member since 2013, JTS has been using the CargoNet program to educate shippers and carriers about possible risks that have been identified as significantly important to their primary logistics and shipping activities. JTS has integrated the CargoNet program into our daily carrier relations operations to the fullest extent possible to safeguard our customers’ freight and stay informed about potential threats in the marketplace.

CargoNet helps transportation companies, shippers, and other supply chain stakeholders prevent cargo theft and improve recovery rates through secure and controlled information-sharing among theft victims, their business partners, and law enforcement. Leveraging a national database managed by crime analysts and subject-matter experts, CargoNet provides intelligence-gathering tools, tips, procedural recommendations, training and analytics.
