How Heavy Equipment Dealerships Utilized Globalstar Technology to Prevent Theft
For months many heavy equipment dealerships were randomly hit by a a group of well disciplined criminals. They worked as a team to take a very specific list of implements and equipment, storing it in a paneled truck. With no capture of the thiefs it was only a matter of time before they struck again. The first hit were other dealerships who had no anti-theft measures in place. Those organizations never recovered their equipment and could only watch the video of the well choreographed team drive off with their goods.
After a few months the criminals were back, and this time they were caught by the police after a short chase. The equipment and implements were once again recovered and arrests were made. Along with the video footage and the police records the data from SPOT Trace now in use with the SPOT My Globalstar mapping application helped to prosecute the case and gain a conviction.
With a few low cost investments, heavy equipment can be protected from theft. Find out more about our solutions at www.globalstar.com/solutions/asset-management
