TRUCKING eLearning

TRUCKING eLearning course for truck drivers vs cargo thefts, human trafcking and illegal migration “Cargo crime is a global problem. In 2016, we recorded 2,611 cargo thefts in EMEA, up 72% over 2015, and although only 43.5% of these reported a value, these crimes alone involved losses of over 77.6 million. The average loss for major incidents last year (those with a value of 100,000 or more), based on crimes with a value, was 351,031 per crime. Our latest data for Q3 2017 shows a further 25.9% rise year-on-year, while losses giving a value in the rst nine months of 2017 have already exceeded 80 million.” – Thorsten Neumann, Chairman of the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)

TRUCKING The eLearning market is rapidly expanding globally pushing more companies and entities to tap this resource to enhance people's skills, improve services or even fight crimes. The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) in c o o p e r a t i o n w i t h I R U , t h e International Road Transport Union, are among these entities exploring eLearning to fight cargo thefts, illegal migration and human smuggling. IRU and TAPA have jointly developed a new eLearning course to help truck drivers minimize security risks such as cargo theft, illegal migration and smuggling. Globally, eLearning market globally is valued at US$165 billion but is likely to grow by 5% between 2016 and 2023, exceeding US$240 billion, according to Docebo's eLearning Market Trends and Forecast: 2017- 2021, a report on the current state and future of eLearning globally. Following TAPA EMEA's newly released Incident Information Service (IIS) Annual Report for 2017 showing a 10.3% increase in recorded cargo crimes in the region last year, 2018 got off to an ominous start with freight losses up by a further 18.5% year-on-year in January. The 179 reported incidents last month compared to 151 in January 2017. Cargo crimes were recorded in 15 countries across the EMEA region in the past month, producing a total loss value of €8,020,896 for the 144 or 80.4% of reports providing financial data. The average loss, based on all crimes with a value, however, fell by 52.7% over the corresponding month last year to €55,700. Furthermore, 14 of the crimes added to the TAPA IIS database in January were major cargo thefts with loss values in excess of €100,000. They had a combined value of €3,775,805 and an average loss of €269,700. TAPA EMEA has been asked not to share any information on three of these crimes. Through email interview, Air Cargo Update discussed with Thorsten N e u m a n n , C h a i r m a n o f t h e Transpor ted Asset Protection Association (TAPA) in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region how eLearning can help drivers combat cargo theft to a minimum. “Cargo crime is a global problem. I can only quote figures for cargo thefts recorded by TAPA's Incident Information Service (IIS) in the EMEA region and, although we still strongly believe cargo thefts are significantly underreported, these give a clear insight into the size of the problem and the upward trends we are seeing,” said Neumann. “In 2016, we recorded 2,611 cargo thefts in EMEA, up 72% over 2015, and although only 43.5% of these reported a value, these crimes alone involved losses of over €77.6 million.
