Plant Tracking: Combatting The Rise of Machinery Theft in 2023

During the first few months of the pandemic’s ‘shut down’ periods, statistics show that machinery theft increased by 50%, and has been on the rise since. Large plant machinery is often a common target for thieves due to its high financial value. Even smaller goods such as tools and materials are a common target as they’re not easily identifiable and easy to sell. In a survey done by the Chartered Institute of Builders, it was found that 21% of respondents experienced site theft weekly, 63% monthly and 92% yearly.

According to CESAR (the UK’s Official Construction Equipment Security and Registration Scheme), as little as 5% of unregistered plant machinery is ever recovered, meaning the financial impact theft could have on your business could be devastating.
