The road freight transport sector faces many security threats today. Cargo theft continues to be a multi-billion-euro problem for the European transport sector.
Irregular immigrants and terrorists pose additional security risks to international trucking operations – the former are boarding trucks clandestinely to cross borders, while the latter have turned heavy vehicles into weapons by hijacking and driving them into crowds.
To address these risks, Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport of the European Commission, DG MOVE, commissioned Cross-border Research Association (CBRA) of Switzerland and TAPA (as a subcontractor) to develop a new security toolkit for the European Road Freight Transport Sector.
This document is an abridged version of the ROADSEC toolkit. It aims at providing operational guidance that will help European truck drivers, haulage companies and other key stakeholders to address the above problems.
