CanTrack Global announce 24% rise in plant and agricultural theft

The Plant & Agricultural National Intelligence Unit (PANIU) show a comparable 23% rise in plant and agricultural thefts in their UK 2018 report. This year alone, CanTrack Global Ltd customer recoveries topped one million pounds in value.

At the time of writing (6 June 2019), the number sits at over £1,200,000. Recovering so much asset value in 2019 saves money for CanTrack customers, their insurers and saves valuable police time. John Mussett, CanTrack Global’s Director of Investigations reports that the current auditable recovery-rate is 94%.

As a Thatcham and Secured by Design product, CanTrack Global work closely with the police to share intelligence and education. CanTrack support police initiatives such as events & campaigns as well as training police on how they can use our products in their various operations. CanTrack recently hosted Essex Police Stolen Vehicle Intelligence Unit as well as the National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service to discuss plant theft, freight crime and the latest tactics in combatting this ever-increasing theft trend. CanTrack Global have industry-leading expertise in various methods of electronic attack tools used by modern, organised criminals that we shared with the police.

Commenting on the increasing crime figures, Essex Police Stolen Vehicle Intelligence Unit said “Recovering stolen assets to their rightful owners stops money falling into the hands of organised criminals. Organised criminal gangs use stolen goods to fund activities such as human trafficking, illegal drug distribution and other organised crime. Working with CanTrack Global, we can share intelligence, knowledge and tactics to ensure we keep customer assets out of criminal hands, reducing thefts as well as organised crime.”

John Mussett added “The Investigations Unit we have is completely unique in the industry and does some of our most visible and important work in our mission to protect the vehicles and assets of our clients. We rely on intelligence from our units as well as Police intelligence units allowing us to recover assets on behalf of our customers swiftly and effectively. Working with Essex SVIU will allow us to continue our industry leading asset tracking and recovery service, benefiting customers, the Police and the wider community”.

At the recent PlantWorx Awards 2019, CanTrack won the prestigious Security Gold Award. Commenting on this win, PlantWorx’s judges commented on how the tracking genuinely leads to assets being recovered – “CanTrack has taken the industry forward”

CanTrack Global will be exhibiting at PlantWorx 2019 on stand DB13 and the CITS Best Practice Security Zone (BF1).
