Road freight security

Thousands of lorries are stolen in the UK each year, which is why we’re represented on police and industry groups dedicated to sharing information about road freight crime and discussing best practice initiatives.

These groups include Joint Action Group On Lorry Theft (JAGOLT), the Metropolitan Police's Operation Grafton, TruckWatch and the RHA Security Committee. We’re committed to supporting the police in their work against lorry and load theft.

We also provide theft alert email bulletins to help keep your vehicles and loads safe and secure. If you'd like to sign up to our theft alert emails, please email memberservices@fta.co.uk
