Risk Management Programs (RMP)

Security of logistics operations is achieved by defining and implementing security measures that minimize the chances of cargo robbery/theft. ARM defines each Risk Management Program specifically for your operation by analyzing the main elements involved in exposure to risk: the cargo being transported, the itinerary, the location of the goods, the vehicles and drivers involved, and the organizational characteristics of the cargo generator and its logistics operator/transport carrier.

ARM manages the implementation and control of the security measures determined for each transit process through the use of our proprietary management software, which ensures that all services provided are monitored and recorded.

Security Tools

› Active Monitoring/Online Escort Services

ARM’s operations monitoring central office, which operates 24 x 7, monitors all cargo transportation units with the GPS installed in the vehicles and/or hidden in the goods. This gives us access to the information through our own platform or through a mirror platform by accessing the software belonging to the GPS provider. Additionally, before each transit start point, we conduct functionality tests of the satellite tracking equipment, and in the event of a loss, the proper alerts are activated and our effective goods recovery procedures are set in motion.

Integration with + 60 GPS/satellite tracking companies

› Armed Custody/ Escort Services

ARM employs service providers that are authorized to carry and use weapons depending on the jurisdiction. They are the ones that activate the recovery procedure, coordinating the task with different private security services and/or the police forces, with their own personnel and custodial vehicles located at strategic points for rapid verification of potential incidents.
