Cargo risks & losses in Germany

The risk of cargo crime is a daily concern for supply chains in Germany. In the 18 months to 30 June 2022, the TAPA EMEA Intelligence System (TIS) alone identified 2,348 cargo thefts and product losses of more than €9.3 million for the 14.6% of these incidents reporting a value. Statistics show cargo crime groups are now active across the country.

Matthias started his career in the German Police in 1980, working in different CIDs. In 1993, he switched to the private investigation industry, focusing on Counter Fraud Services for the insurance sector, and has since supported over 250 German and international insurance carriers with counter fraud services in all kinds of business lines. Today, he runs ILV Advisers, together with his partner Detlev Warnke, in Germany. In addition to his day job, he is also a lecturer at the education institute (DVA) at the German Insurance Association (GDV), where he educates SIU agents.
