Transport Security and Protection

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 Security South Africa installs IP camera 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 South Africa 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 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.
