Transportation & Logistics Security Solutions

A Better Choice for Service Over the Long Haul

Protection 1 is a national leader when it comes to delivering security solutions that can work harder for your business. We understand the increasingly complex transportation and logistics sector and the new challenges facing carriers, warehousing and logistics providers. We have the experience and resources to successfully identify security risks along your supply chain and develop critical infrastructure solutions to address them, while helping you stay safe and on budget.

The growing regulatory environment encourages you to meet or exceed compliance with C-TPAT, TAPA, TSA, Cargo 2000 and IATA—just to name a few. While you need protection against loss from cargo theft and liability, there is also a growing need to combat losses, promote workplace safety, confirm cargo security and document incidents throughout your operation. Pressure to boost business profitability involves addressing these logistics challenges while finding innovative ways to improve efficiency across your operation.

  • IP Video Surveillance Systems

    Video Solutions

    • Video solutions, including CCTV, video cameras and high-tech video surveillance systems, can protect your facilities by deterring crime and monitoring high traffic or sensitive areas. Cargo theft can occur anywhere during the loading/unloading, transporting and warehousing process, so video monitoring of these activities and areas is essential. More

      Event-triggered video solutions are playing an expanded role in transportation and logistic security efforts and have fast become a prevention-based security solution. Using advanced video analytics, Protection 1 can significantly reduce false alarms by accurately differentiating legitimate threats from normal scene activity. When suspicious activity is detected in a specific area, such as a loading dock, it can be tracked with event notifications, immediately alerting our monitoring staff for a fast, video-verified response.

      Using advanced pattern-based video analytics, video surveillance can now cover your remote freight locations, storage yards or high-threat areas—with immediate alert notifications. Your video records can be stored at the edge (within the camera) or can reside in the cloud. This cost-effective, bandwidth-friendly solution helps to prevent loss of recorded video, document events and guard against losses at critical points in your supply chain—for a fraction of the cost of security guards.

  • Access Control Systems

    Access Control

    • Access control systems can reduce premise liability by keeping unauthorized individuals out of restricted or sensitive areas of a warehouse, storage areas and distribution terminals. For instance, you can choose different levels of access for drivers, loaders, office personnel and others based on employee type or duty, so that only authorized individuals can enter designated areas of the facility. More

We are a Lenel OnGuard certified partner with Elite TierVantage status and can protect everything from a regional terminal to a national company infrastructure with a deeper level of security surrounding the backbone of your data network.

      We offer advanced access control applications with a feature-rich alarm monitoring module. IP-enabled controllers allow our solution to extend easily to all parts of your transportation and logistics enterprise with the appropriate degree of security at each point of entry. We can upgrade your existing system or create a new scaleable system with built-in support for all card technologies, including MIFARE and iCLASS smart cards, as well as biometrics and wireless access control devices.
