For those who track cargo and warehouse theft, it’s no secret that electronics, computer components and designer brands are prime targets for theft. It’s also no secret that a good many thieves bring ingenuity to their craft. A shipping article from this summer noted that: "Last year, security services company G4S pointed out that criminal gangs were resorting to 3-D printing to copy security devices to break into containers. Research uncovered that harbour criminals were creating perfect replicas of well-known cable seals, security locks and keys, and using these to cover their tracks and obscure any signs of theft, such as a broken seal."
