October 15, 2008 // Franchising.com // Altamonte Springs, FL, -- Secure Trailer Depot has developed state-of-the-art, secure locations for the temporary and long-term storage of trailers and cargo containers. Franchising will fulfill the immediate need for multiple facilities in U.S.
The aftermath of the events of 9/11 resulted in shining a spotlight onto the lack of overall security, screening, and availability of secure facilities within the U.S. As a pro-active and important part of the U.S. distribution network, Secure Trailer Depot has developed facilities deemed as "Secure Trailer Depot Safe Havens" that can be utilized while cargo is in transit on our nation's interstate highways. These "havens" are secure facilities in which to drop and park cargo containers and trailers. Each facility provides uniform security related services as a viable and cost-effective option to reduce the threat and opportunity for theft and terrorist related incidents for both industry and government.
Secure Trailer Depot, Inc. is the nation's premier provider of secure storage facilities for freight and cargo. According to the National Cargo Security Council, cargo theft is estimated to account for up to $25 billion in direct merchandise losses each year. With more than 675,000 registered interstate motor carriers moving 65 percent of the freight in the United States, the opportunity for theft is at an all time high. The immediate need to expand into multiple markets has led the management team at Secure Trailer Depot to offer franchises in select markets throughout the U.S.
