Abstract: As a result of a rapid influx of migrants within Europe over the past two years, European Union (EU) member states have taken extraordinary measures, including imposing new border controls throughout the region. These measures have seriously hampered the free movement of cargo in many areas of the continent, leading to significant delays and added costs to cross-border shipments. Stowaway attempts into cargo trucks also often lead to costly losses of goods and expose companies to expensive fines.
This BSI special report provides an overview of the cargo disruption threats posed by the crisis to date, highlights current geographic flashpoints for stowaway attempts, and considers the implications of the major initiatives currently under consideration to address the crisis.
