Keeping Hubs Of Commerce Secure

Attracting Criminals. Fulfillment centers contain large quantities of new merchandise (the type that’s easy to sell anonymously on the Internet). The hustle and bustle of the operation, with trucks coming in and out, loading and unloading often around the clock, gives thieves the impression that no one would notice if packages went missing.
