If you run a construction company you are likely painfully aware of and perhaps a multiple time victim of construction equipment and supply theft. It’s difficult to maintain security on remotely located assets, many of which cannot easily be physically secured and therefore become theft targets. GPS based asset tracking can help overcome these challenges.
Construction equipment and supplies theft results in:
- Project delays
- Costly replacement
- Lost productivity
- Rising insurance premiums
- Operational burdens to support criminal investigations and claims processing
Unfortunately only seldom are stolen construction equipment or supplies recovered and returned to their rightful owners. Today’s professional thieves understand how to bypass most anti-theft systems, are quick to fence equipment and rapidly move onto their next victim. And of course there is the more difficult task to deal with, supply shrinkage, especially given large numbers of employees and subcontractors having access to your job and supply sites.
Preventative action can be taken by installing job site security systems and staffing construction sites with 24x7 security patrols. Unfortunately this is often not enough.
A great way to improve construction asset security is to monitor core assets via covertly deployed battery operated GPS asset trackers. Capable of being located both outdoors and indoors in real time, GPS trackers become an effective tool to increase the probability of a quick recovery from theft.
