Identifying theft at warehouses
We help our clients to identify, block and root out any existing illicit schemes involving theft and pilferage in production processes and warehousing facilities, as well as prevent new theft/pilferage schemes from taking root.
In Russian and CIS markets, losses from fraudulent activities related to warehousing and logistics operations can reach up to three percent of the value of turnover in warehouse inventory. We take the following approach to pinpoint specific weaknesses in warehouse processes that can provide opportunities for theft and pilferage:
- Analyzing all aspects of warehouse business processes that could potentially open the door to fraud and abuse
- Examining IT settings, vulnerabilities and control infrastructure (including video surveillance and access control systems)
- Modeling potential theft scenarios with step-by-step descriptions
- Validating scenarios via retrospective analysis of accounting systems and control infrastructure data
As a result, we draw up and provide a detailed roadmap of measures that the company should implement in order to block existing and potential theft scenarios. In the roadmap development process, we use optimal solutions based on implementation costs, support, timing and the reduction of business loss criterion.
