Theft within the supply chain is on the rise

tesa® SecuritySealing - unerlaubte Zugriffe irreversibel anzeigen

Tampering and theft within the supply chain has developed into a serious problem. For 2015 alone, BSI Supply Chain Services and Solutions estimate the financial loss through cargo theft at 22 billion US dollars worldwide.

One reason for this is the franticly fast shift in the logistics industry. Logistics processes are becoming more complex and making monitoring and safeguarding the logistics chain more difficult. Delivered goods are often not sufficiently protected and thereby exposed to the risk of tampering, replacement of products and theft. Manufacturers of products suffer financial losses on the one hand, also through the high incidence of complaints. On the other hand, the company reputation is enduringly damaged, if goods arrive damaged or not at all or if replaced products are delivered.

On their way from the producer to the end customer via the dealer, brand products have to be protected by secure sealing. tesa scribos® offers customized security concepts for maximum protection against theft, tampering and the replacement of products.
