It is not easy to safeguard assets in a Distribution or Fulfillment center. On any given day, a busy warehouse can hold hundreds of thousands of square feet of merchandise worth millions of dollars. With 24-hour operations, high turnover rates, and seasonal and temporary workers, a well-thought-out layered physical security plan is critical in preventing theft, property damage, or violence losses.
The large quantities of inventory and merchandise that Distribution Centers store and transport at any given moment make them prime locations for theft. As a result, Distribution Centers are frequently the victims of theft. Theft and destruction of a crucial part of the supply chain not only harm the operation but also make it more difficult to transport products to and from the various industries that the chain serves.
Best Distribution Center Security Services
Some of the challenges faced include:
- Cargo Theft
- Property Damage
When you guard a distribution center, you ensure that your inventory and employees are protected from damage while maintaining uninterrupted business operations.
The majority of distribution facilities have a sizable physical footprint and employ several different shifts of workers throughout the day. It can be difficult to maintain the site’s safety and security when there are deliveries made at all hours of the day and night and lots of personnel.
Your requirements for security may change from one location to another depending on the types of materials that you stock and disseminate. In situations like these, you need security specialists who have experience and understanding of the field; having them around means that you, your staff, and your workforce can concentrate on the business at hand.
METRO Security Guard Client Representative will meet with you – and your team if you would like – to discuss the current security requirements before we develop the appropriate security solution for you. We will be better able to understand how to organize our security employees most effectively if we take a tour of the distribution facilities as well as the surrounding areas, such as parking lots and loading docks.
Because of the size and complexity of the building as well as the long hours of operation, distribution centers may need both unarmed and armed security professionals to handle the situation. These specialists are trained to blend in effortlessly with your company and professionally conduct themselves regardless of whether they are patrolling the outside grounds or the inside of your facility.
A mobile security unit is the solution if your distribution center is situated on a large campus with multiple warehouses, loading docks, and parking facilities all close to one another. We provide our automobiles, three-wheeled scooters, and electronic carts, and we also maintain them.
