Protect your business and yourself against cyber-criminals posing as transport companies

Doing business online definitely makes life easier, unless you fall prey to a cybercriminal posing as a transport company. These virtual thieves have been known to steal loads out of shipping yards and docks without anyone realizing it until the delivery has become past due.

Here are a few tips on how to protect yourself if you’re considering doing business with a new carrier – make sure you ask for:

  • A notice that requires information in advance
  • 30-days notice of any changes
  • Documentation from CVOR, NSC or other agencies
  • Proof of Insurance (Cargo & Liability)
  • Customs accreditation
  • Terms and conditions of service
  • Hauling information—will they be hauling the load themselves?
  • Any special permits or equipment your load may require
  • Referrals or recommendations
