What was the security risk?

This case study is a great example of our gatehouse security services.

When transporting goods, there are many security risks. The biggest being criminals. Thieves tend to target transit vehicles whilst they are being stored. They do this in hopes of stealing valuable goods.

As well as theft, another security risk that many logistics businesses face is unauthorised access. Most criminals tend to break into sites at night, some try to sneak in whilst the vehicles are being checked in. Unauthorised entry often leads to other risks. Such as stolen goods, vandalismed equipment and damage to storage facilities.

Maritime Transport had some troubles with unauthorised visitors on their site. And they reached out to us when they became unhappy with their previous security supplier. When Maritime got in touch, we quickly provided them with a tailored security solution.

How did we help them?

We started protecting Maritime Transport in February last year. When a previous supplier had let them down.

We supply Maritime Transport with a team of security guards that provide 24/7 security coverage. Our guards are not only an excellent deterrent to criminals, but they also supply Maritime with a safer working environment.

One of the main tasks our guards have is monitoring access points. Our officers will review vehicles as they enter or leave the site. Our guards conduct efficient security ID checks. They do this to make sure that the trucks which are entering have valid reasons to be there. They also check that no unauthorised visitors are trying to enter the premises.

At the moment, we only protect one site owned by Maritime Transport. But hopefully, soon we will be taking over weekend security cover at a second site.

"The security has been fantastic overall. Guard is an absolute superstar and please pass on our thanks. I have been very impressed and we would like to use Region if we have any holidays to cover in the future."


"We approached Region Security Guarding with an urgent need for security at a large site in Pineham, Northamptonshire. They provided us with a quotation within the hour and managed to resource a security guard for the following day. The security guard worked on the site for a two-month period and was punctual, reliable, and professional throughout. Any queries or requests that we had throughout this period, were actioned promptly by the Region Security manager. We would definitely recommend using Region Security, as they provided an excellent service for a reasonable price."


“A professional and reliable service. Always easy to contact and has never let us down with cover. No hesitation in recommending and competitively priced also. After using an unreliable costly company for several years it is a pleasure to do business with Region Security. Thank you Namrita and team!”

“Fantastic service, really could not have asked for more from them.”


"Due to increase in shoplifting the company supplied us with security guards. They proved to be very good and managed to catch many shoplifters. In fact some of them were our regular customers. In a few months our takings and profit has gone up. I would recommend Region Security Guarding anytime."
