Protect Protective Equipment

During the current pandemic, personal protective equipment is more valuable than ever, and protecting PPE has never been more important!

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, demand for personal protective equipment has been at an all-time high. Across the United States, businesses, individuals, and organizations have been desperately scrambling for PPE equipment such as masks, gloves, and sanitizer. Apart from PPE, other essential items such as toilet paper and staple food items are also under increasing demand.A recent story on NBC Boston highlighted just this when a container load of aprons from China that was destined for a non-profit in Massachusetts suddenly went missing after clearing customs in the United States. The non-profit organization partnered up with sixteen other organizations or organized the shipment of gowns, and the situation was so dire that they were down to using rain ponchos to protect their staff.Luckily, after the story became national news, Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass, stepped in to help the organization track down their missing shipment. This was just one example where GPS telematic tracking could have helped locate the missing shipment and provide authorities with the exact location of the missing PPE.

In another theft, $400,000 worth of toilet paper that was destined for veterans was stolen and then later located in a stolen truck container with GPS tracking.  As the COVID-19 situation continues, opportunistic thieves will continue targeting essential food, medicine, and PPE supplies.
