A division of Verisk Crime Analytics, CargoNet maintains a national database and information-sharing system which is managed by crime analysts and subject-matter experts. It provides coordinated incident communications, recovery support and deterrence measures. CargoNet draws on a network of more than 120,000 law-enforcement officers and agents from some 9,000 agencies in the U.S. and Canada. The initiative passes information about thefts to statewide law-enforcement systems as well as select non-law-enforcement channels, almost immediately after a theft is reported. CargoNet helps law enforcement to find critical information to help carry out complex investigations, identify perpetrators and recover stolen product. C.H. Robinson is encouraging its contract carriers also to join CargoNet. The global provider of multimodal logistics services maintains a network of more than 275 offices and 11,000 employees.
