Freight brokerage firm Total Quality Logistics has been awarded the CargoNet Best in Cargo Security award for its cargo theft prevention efforts.

“We thank TQL for using the CargoNet program the way it was designed to be used,” Anthony Canale, CargoNet general manager, said in a news release. “We can provide intelligence, tips, best practices, training and analytics, but we can’t force our business partners to apply them. In TQL’s case, its team has embraced the program and assisted in its development,”

“Cargo theft is a serious problem across the country, and it’s critically important that we do everything in our power to protect our customers’ freight,” TQL executive vice president Kerry Byrne said in the release. “We’re proud that our team’s efforts have been recognized with this award.”

CargoNet helps transportation companies, shippers, and others in the supply chain prevent cargo theft and improve recovery rates through secure and controlled information sharing among theft victims, their business partners and law enforcement.
