For equipment rental organizations like Herc Rentals, theft is one of the leading causes of equipment losses.
Nationally, the wholesale cost of inventory stolen from equipment rental organizations in general is estimated at $300 million to $1 billion annually according to the National Crime Information Center. This doesn’t include the indirect costs, such as rental of replacement equipment, project delays and filing insurance claims.
To better protect their high-incident locations, Herc Rentals turned to STANLEY Security for Thermal Perimeter Detection with incident verification from the STANLEY ProtectionNet Monitoring Center. Herc Rentals and STANLEY worked together to identify monitoring zones within the equipment yard and perimeter fence.
