Logistics UK is set to launch a Van Security Report for 2020 at the virtual Van Operational Briefing on 6 November 2020.
The announcement will take place alongside a presentation on how to minimise the risks of potentially costly thefts.
According to the trade body, there were 11,729 recorded incidents of contents theft from vans/light commercial vehicles in the first six months of 2020.
Denise Beedell, Logistics UK’s policy manager for vans and urban, said: “On average, organisations surveyed by Logistics UK have had items stolen from their vans four times in the past 12 months, costing each business around £4,250 in total.
“Vans are essential to UK businesses and we must ensure operators are aware of theft risks and are up to date on guidance for minimising them.”
She added: “Logistics UK’s Van Operational Briefing is the perfect opportunity to identify ways to minimise risk and ensure that vans stay on the road, serving British businesses.”
