Equipment Package: Commercial Vehicle and Freight Security

Description: This equipment package provides for the security of the commercial vehicle and the freight that it carries by detecting breaches such as seals or locks being broken into by unauthorized personnel and/or any other unauthorized tampering. In addition, this equipment package monitors the commercial vehicle driver and compares it with the planned driver for the vehicle. In a similar manner, the driver and vehicle that have been assigned to move freight are monitored and compared with the planned assignment for that freight. In all cases, any deviations to the planned assignments and any breach or tamper events are reported to the Emergency Management Subsystem.
