Especially in Florida, Cargo thieves are experts in shipping, logistics, technology and planning. Cargo theft is precise, well planned and most often occurs hours before anyone even realizes the goods have been stolen! Even once cargo theft is reported, on the highway, stolen semitrailers look the same as thousands of other trucks. The thieves then drive hours away, unload all the merchandise into another truck or storage space, and ditch the stolen rig.  Our team of licensed Cargo Theft Investigators at SRA are Experts in prevention and recovery of stolen cargo throughout the state of Florida. Once cargo theft has occurred, it is a race against the clock until it is gone forever. As Florida Private Investigators with extensive experience in cargo theft, our team is ready to immediately deploy in Tampa, Orlando or anywhere in Florida.

The majority of cargo thefts (76%) happen in the following 4 states:

Florida 24

California 23

With Cargo Theft being a multi-billion dollar industry it’s no surprise that the expert thieves have no trouble negotiating their way around traditional theft prevention and tracking systems. Cargo thieves are notorious for deactivating or removing traditional fleet GPS tracking units to disable any means of recovering the stolen cargo! In addition to a superior knowledge of the shipping industry, they often “pay off” drivers, security guards, warehouse and dock workers to cooperate with the theft! Florida Cargo Thieves even use Surveillance tactics of their own such as GPS Tracking, Data Monitoring Software and Covert Audio “Bugs” all of which are virtually undetectable without the necessary equipment and training to identify these devices.

Mark A., Tampa, FL | Attorney, 16 years

I have worked with Southern Recon on several investigations. He is an excellent investigator who always gets the job done no matter how complex or dangerous the situation. His fees are very reasonable and he usually puts in more hours than he gets paid for in order to make sure he does a professional job. I highly recommend Southern Recon Agency.

Tina G., Ontario, Canada

Matt provided me with superior service. He handled my investigation in a very professional manner and was always available for me 24/7. He helped solve my case and provided me with accurate evidence proving the suspicion of my husband’s infidelity. I highly recommend his services. Words cannot express the gratitude I have for his services!

Chris G., Tampa, Fl

I requested a background investigation on person that I was looking to conduct business with. I corresponded with the professionals at the Agency over email and the telephone. At no time, was I confused or concern about the process of this investigation. The process was thoroughly explained. Matt Aubin potentially saved me thousands of dollars by giving me an accurate understanding of who I was looking to do business with. Needless to say, I will not be conducting any business with this individual. I am extremely grateful for the work performed by Matt and the agency. It was worth every penny. The level of service provided exceeded my expectations.

Donnie C., Orlando, Fl

These folks are professional and will get results for you quickly. They are not the run of the mill grinding hours for billing people that often fill this profession. Thanks!
