Road Cargo Theft Working Group
The insufficient amount of data currently available on road cargo theft was the main reason behind the launch of a road cargo theft working group supported by the EU (DG MOVE, Land Transport Security) and managed by CORTE. The working group looks at what data should be collected and how. To support quality incident reporting, the working group produces definitions of incidents and modus operandi that could become EU benchmarks for incident reporting. They also formalised how incidents can be reported and promote best practices for public and private organisations. The working group is supporting the EU Commission at assessing whether an IT tool can be set up at EU level and how.
