Warehouse Security and Protection
Lodge Security South Africa can help you to protect your warehousing, retail premises and other commercial areas to ensure safe and secure storage of goods, as well as site entry and exit points. This includes controlled access to public and ‘staff only’ areas, and secure storage. We will help you set up systems to supervise levels of permitted access and movement recording systems, to monitor the movement of goods and other assets on site and their onward transportation.
Our support includes help with securing key areas on each estate with CCTV and physical security measures, appropriate to the level of threat and the volume of activity. The goal is to ensure that your team can go about their daily activities with the least possible constraints and restrictions, whilst ensuring a suitable level of monitoring and security. We will help you set up routines and processes on site, security rotas and reporting systems – all that is necessary to monitor and manage a busy workplace.
Transport Security and Protection
Vans and trucks, buses and articulated vehicles, forklift trucks and other industrial equipment: we can help you protect all your valuable assets to counter the risk of theft and criminal damage.
Lodge Security South Africa can secure depots and vehicle parks, to control access and ensure 24-7 monitoring via CCTV and two-way communications systems. We carry out full risk assessments and can train your staff in all relevant security routines and protocols.
Support includes railway stock and infrastructure, platforms and equipment. Railway cabling and electrical systems can be a major target for theft and criminal damage. We are able to advise on protective measures, including additional physical security as well as CCTV monitoring of installations.
Lodge Service installs IP cameras and CCTV systems to enable the protection of remote and hard to access electrical and other services installations. CCTV monitoring over the internet can support rail networks, including platforms and passenger areas, railyards and depots.
Other transport systems we protect include airports and their on-site facilities, including franchise and concessions: food and beverage, retail and catering, hospitality and hotel accommodation.
Logistics Security and Protection
Retail distribution systems and industrial logistics are perhaps most vulnerable when goods are in transit, including at the point of arrival. Articulated vehicles and other trucks may be scheduled to arrive overnight or otherwise out of hours to enable timely restocking of warehouse facilities and minimise disruption to daytime operations.
Lodge Security has developed a range of services to support secure, cost-effective out of hours deliveries. This includes DCD, Driver Controlled Deliveries, which enable a single driver to safely transport goods to retail and other destinations.
Vehicles are equipped with a geopositioning tracking device as well as two-way communication so that the driver can remain in touch with the Lodge Service intelligence centre at all times when goods are in transit, 24-7. Upon arrival at a depot or retail premises, the driver can request the intelligence centre to remotely unlock the goods-in area.
The Lodge security manager can make a visual check via the CCTV channel to ensure the goods-in area is clear and secure, and then remotely unlock the premises, so that the driver can complete the delivery. The unloading process is then monitored by the intelligence centre.
Drivers can be further equipped with personal cameras, personal alarms and fall detector devices, to alert the intelligence centre to a potential security incident.
