Loss Control
iMVULA QUALITY PROTECTION HAS SUCCESSFULLY EMBARKED ON EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE LOSS CONTROL INITIATIVES IN A VARIETY OF BUSINESS SECTORS INCLUDING WAREHOUSING, LOGISTICS AND MATERIALS HANDLING, SPECIFICALLY COMPLIANT TO REQUIREMENTS SET BY GOOD WAREHOUSING PRACTICES AND RELATED ISO STANDARDS. WE MAKE USE OF THE SYSTEMS AND TOOLS DESCRIBED IN THIS PROFILE TO ENSURE THE EFFICIENT MANAGEMENT OF STOCK AND ASSETS.

Specific procedures and systems are continuously developed and aligned to international best-practice models in the retail, manufacturing and industrial environments, addressing tested processes for picking, packing, checking, seal control and dispatch and receiving controls.

Identifying risks, understanding the vulnerabilities presented at each event of the warehousing process, and taking sensible measures to plug gaps efficiently and permanently are critical elements in good warehousing security practice and control implementation.

Warehouse security controls refer to the requirements, processes and procedures that are implemented to secure and enhance the security through the whole warehousing life cycle of receiving, storage and dispatch. The sum of all warehouse security controls, coupled with the people assigned to implement these controls, comprise the security control framework.

To ensure a tight warehouse security system, iMvula Quality Protection follows the approach of conducting detailed security audits prior to commencement and at random intervals during contract service delivery.

The objective of these audits are to test and improve the effectiveness of warehouse security controls to determine if the security control framework is adequately designed and includes preventive, detective and corrective security controls. In addition to the assessment of physical warehouse design elements such as the number and proximity of entrances and exits, floor layout, product storage and movement protocols, and integration with technology such as camera surveillance, convex mirrors, RFID technology, scanning systems and card or biometric access systems, a large emphasis is placed on how the human element responds to the type of product warehoused. Contractor and personnel-assisted theft is unfortunately a common cause of losses in the warehousing environment and measures to prevent this are critical to the implementation of an effective security system.

In addition to thorough vetting procedures, hot products warehoused have to be identified and protected in such a way that pilferage is prevented efficiently. Hot products are defined as products that are easily concealable, removable, available, valuable, enjoyable and disposable. In addition to limiting uncontrolled access to hot products and implementing physical security barriers and technologies, our approach is also to reduce temptation and the opportunity for crime by creating high visibility of hot products, as well as staff and contractors working in the proximity of the hot products, at all times. This approach also involves the placement of undercover floor detectives working amongst staff and contractors.

To achieve tight warehouse security iMvula Quality Protection therefore follows a “broken windows” approach to identifying all aspects of risk and the opportunity for theft in the warehousing environment. This enables us to build a security system that lends itself to a systematic zero tolerance approach that prevents and detects potential losses quickly and efficiently by focusing on the detail of every step in the warehousing life cycle.
