The globalization of logistics has created new opportunities for unlawful behavior. For many of our customers, both logistics service providers and manufacturers of high-value products, securing freight in transit is a critical business risk. SGS is pioneering services in facility security to ensure safer value chains.
As part of diversifying our reach and expertise at SGS, we researched logistics safety with global security company SECOM Co., Ltd. The results show that many organizations are looking for ways to gauge the level of protection in the logistics facilities in their supply chains, whether they own the facilities or are using those of a third party. To meet this demand, we filled the gap in the market by launching the SGS Facility Security Evaluation Service (FSES). By assessing everything from surveillance cameras to sensors and personnel, while also investigating vehicle access controls, we are giving companies the opportunity to either evidence their security levels or, if they are providing a service, to demonstrate they have the right safety and security measures in place at their facilities.
By limiting the ease with which criminals can act, SGS is taking a pioneering role in helping to prevent organized crime from becoming more established in global supply chains.
