Why is warehouse security needed?
Warehouses are prime targets for criminals. Many businesses rely on warehouses to store their goods and supplies. This makes warehouse security one of the most important aspects of commercial businesses. Many facility managers have tried to cut corners when it comes to security for warehouses in Birmingham. Unfortunately, they have later realised that it cost them more in the long run. Don’t wait until it’s too late, contact us today for a free no-obligation quote.
The Centre for Retail Research reported that losses from retail warehouses cost £915 million in 2019, accounting for 18% of all shrinkage and retail crime costs. This was a 4.6% increase from 2018.
Last year in a retail crime survey, the British Retail Consortium disclosed that 18% of overall retail shrinkage came from crime targeting suppliers and warehouses. It also stated that crime cost retailers £2.2 billion in 2019 and there were 17% more incidents of theft and damage in 2020.
There are many more statistics to show warehouse theft is on the increase. As a facilities manager, you probably don’t need to be told as you have most likely experienced theft or damage to your property or assets yourself.
Sadly, Police responses to warehouse theft and damage have decreased over recent years with an increase in other ‘more serious’ crimes. This led to companies spending a whopping £1.2 billion on crime prevention in 2019, an increase of 20%.
Ways to prevent warehouse theft and vandalism
Some of the ways to combat warehouse theft and damage are:
- CCTV cameras
- Mobile response units
- Manned guards
- Alarm systems
