At every stop:
- Park your truck in a way not to facilitate easy drive away or stealing the cargo

- Keep personal belongings with you at all time

- Always make sure that the alarm system is activated

At loading and unloading:

In general:
- Be on the alert for fake policemen
- Never pick up hitchhikers
- Use secured parking places as much as possible
- Never inform foreigners about the nature of your cargo
