PrePass-CargoNet alliance to combat cargo theft
HELP, Inc. will bolster its support of cargo theft
recovery efforts by delivering
CargoNet® theft alerts through the PrePass system to
roadside enforcement officers at nearly 300 truck inspection
facilities in more than 30 states.
“Providing roadside officers with cargo theft alerts adds
yet another checkpoint to the network already in place to
catch cargo thieves,” said Karen Rasmussen, president and
CEO of HELP Inc., the service provider of PrePass and other
safety services. “ Cargo theft statistics show that the
chance for recovery drops sharply once criminals remove
cargo from the truck, so alerts through the PrePass
truck-screening system will enhance recovery efforts and
reduce the carrier costs associated with cargo thefts.”
CargoNet alert information will be provided to site officers
PrePass site system-messaging feature.
“We are pleased to join with HELP to deliver a practical,
on-the-ground solution to cargo recovery,” said Anthony
Canale, general manager of CargoNet. “Finding stolen cargo
requires a multi-layered approach, and the PrePass program
adds an important new tactic to this effort.”

information-sharing division of Verisk Crime Analytics.
