Reduce Your Risk
Cargo theft will always be a threat to the supply chain industry but there are ways to help reduce your risk by choosing a secure carrier who is well versed in cargo theft prevention.
Road Scholar Transport’s self-created “Pentagon Distribution Model” provides 100% accountability and secure transport by focusing on technology, visibility, protocols, equipment, and audit trails. Here are some of the ways we are protecting your high risk freight:
*Locks: TS4A-Instantly locks all air breaks, preventing unauthorized movements

*Weekend Delivery: It is statistically proven that cargo at rest is cargo at risk with the greatest number of cargo thefts occurring on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Road Scholar Transport, however, offers weekend delivery service for our customers, getting their products delivered quickly and reducing the risk of theft.
*Asset-tracking: Both on the tractor and trailer along with aerial and satellite tracking (down to street level).
*Vivid colors: Our brightly colored awareness trucks make it harder for anyone to steal our trucks.
*Security gate trailers: Internal security gates allow us the ability to separate your cargo from other freight, preventing damage concerns by securely locking your freight within a portion of our trailer. See how it works at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31_ZYxmMc6Y
*Drivers: Uniformed drivers who undergo toughest driver background checks in the business, constantly trained on the latest cargo transport threats.
*Geofencing: Route or facility specific
*Facility Security: Around the clock dispatch and operations center. All facilities are physically fenced and have 24 x 7 x 365 video surveillance.
*Expedited Service: 24-hour expedited service throughout our core service areas.
*Electronic door monitoring
This is part of why we never suffered a full cargo theft in our company’s history!
