“Without Powerfleet for Logistics solutions, the odds of recovering stolen goods are low. Word is likely to be out on the street that Knight is not a desired target given our tracking capabilities.”

In Long Beach, CA, a Knight Transportation driver reported that his truck and trailer were missing. The security department immediately enabled Emergency Track on its Powerfleet for Logistics system to begin the trailer location process. It was discovered that the trailer traveled throughout the previous night ending its journey in Rialto, CA at 8:51 a.m. The authorities were notified of the stolen trailer and were told exactly where it was parked, based on the last location delivered by the Powerfleet system. Surveillancewas immediately established across from a large warehouse facility.
Mission Success– The missing trailer came out of the warehouse hooked to a different tractor. The rig was followed by police and the driver was arrested. The authorities recovered all 111 televisions valued at over $100,000, as well as the tractor. Interestingly, a container was also retrieved containing fabric worth over $250,000 that wasn’t yet reported stolen. Several more arrests were made at the scene.
A Knight Transportation tractor and trailer were reported missing during a particularly busy night in the middle of the peak holiday season. Using the VeriWise system’s reporting features, authorities were able to pinpoint the last known location of the trailer in Compton, CA. Upon arrival at the site, the tractor and trailer, minus the cargo, were recovered. Knight security personnel then back-tracked through the location history of the trailer provided by the system’s best-in-class user interface. It was discovered that the trailer had been parked for several hours the night before in Long Beach, CA at the site of a warehouse and storage facility.
Victorious Recovery – A search warrant was obtained for the warehouse where the authorities found the stolen load of electronics equipment valued at over $335,000. Two additional stolen loads were recovered as well. Over 200 televisions were recovered that were shipped from China and reported stolen. In addition, a load of cosmetics was also recovered and returned to its owners.
Estimated Recovered Value: Over $1 Million. Powerfleet not only improves the efficiency of managing Knight Transportation’s trailer fleet by increasing overall trailer utilization, it also provides a critical security benefit in greatly increasing the chances of recovering stolen cargo.
