BNSF Logistics Receives CargoNet 2020 Best in Cargo Security Award
Dallas, TX – BNSF Logistics, LLC — a leading multi-modal, third-party logistics company — is the proud recipient of the CargoNet 2020 Best in Cargo Security Award.
BNSF Logistics’ industry-first Risk Analysis Program (RAP) ensures high-risk shipments are well-protected through transit. The RAP analyzes customer shipments to determine the overall potential risk, reducing theft occurrences.
The RAP was created by BNSF Logistics Senior Risk Manager, Jordan Hackney, in early 2018 as a solution to the industry’s ongoing risk of cargo theft. This innovative program, the first of its kind, produces success by providing a proactive instead of reactive cargo theft solution for our customers.
The high-tech program utilizes multiple algorithms and predictive analytics to anticipate cargo theft prior to departure. The program ensures our highest-risk cargo is being hauled by our lowest-risk carriers. The RAP has produced on average a significant 79% decrease in BNSF Logistics’ annual cargo thefts over the program’s first three years.
“BNSF Logistics is pleased to be able to provide our customers with the industry’s first proactive solution to cargo theft. It’s this type of forward-thinking approach that helps us lead the way towards cargo theft prevention,” said Jordan Hackney, BNSF Logistics’ Senior Risk Manager.
