 May 22, 2015

Pioneer Transfer, LLC, a transportation intermediary based in Sioux City, Iowa, has been presented with the 2014 Best in Cargo Security award by CargoNet®, the cargo theft prevention and recovery network. CargoNet is a division of Verisk Crime Analytics, a Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK) business.

Various factors were considered in making the award, such as the willingness and ability to commit resources to security, standard operating procedures, and best practices as well as the extent of utilization of, and support for, the CargoNet program.

“CargoNet is proud to have Pioneer Transfer as a supporting member,” said CargoNet Vice President Sal Marino. “It’s been clear from the very beginning that they place a strong emphasis on security and allocate appropriate resources to combat fraud and theft. The team they’ve assembled is very active in deploying prevention methods and response preparedness in the event they become a cargo theft victim.”

CargoNet helps transportation and logistics companies prevent cargo theft and increase recovery rates of stolen merchandise through secure and controlled information sharing among theft victims, their business partners, law enforcement, and the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). Developed in 2009, CargoNet uses case management and analytic functions that enhance the effectiveness of cargo theft task forces. The network also includes training and investigative support for law enforcement, as well as theft prevention services and analytics.

Upon receiving the award, Kari Dobrovolny of Pioneer Transfer said, “We’re thrilled and honored to receive the CargoNet award. CargoNet is the premier organization for cargo security, so to receive an award from such a high-caliber company makes it even better. We’ll continue to strive to maintain the standards and protocols for cargo security we’ve already established, and, thanks to the CargoNet team, we’ll continue to upgrade as necessary.”
