The LTL mode of transportation removes the cargo criminal’s ability to choose and control the product when stealing a completely loaded trailer because freight of all kinds may be aboard. Pilferage committed by employees is a far more prevalent problem in the LTL mode because of the consolidation process and the number of times shipments are handled. Exception reports involving theft in the LTL mode indicate that about 85% of the theft is from internal sources and greater problems can be expected when organized employee theft rings evolve.

The answer depends on several factors. Picking the mode for your commodity is as important as picking the carrier. Once you understand how different groups target commodities, how to choose specific modes for certain shipments will make more sense. Do you want your cargo handled fewer times? Do you not want a full truckload of your product at risk? In addition to cost realities, you have other issues to consider when making your decision. Once you determine a mode, you can pick a carrier. You should also base that choice on how a carrier handles security in its company and for its shippers.

In this mode, both the companies and freight forwarders face most of their theft risks during consolidation. Trucks are required at both ends of an air shipment for pick-­up and delivery. Also, much of the freight-forwarding shipping is done by truck and the truck segments create the most opportunities for problems and exceptions.
