Multimodal supply chains are complex systems, characterised by multiple changes in transport modes and vehicles. This complexity increases the risk of theft, untimely delivery and freight quality deterioration . There is therefore a growing need to manage the security and efficiency of consignments from door to door. Rapid developments in security technologies and solutions are enabling this by opening up new prospects for supply chain security management, while new technologies are enabling improved supply chain risk management against crime and terrorism.
