Gangs are using this stunt known as the Romanian Method, which is performed at high speeds to avoid detection, offloading high-value goods into the vehicle they are travelling in. The raids involved at least three cars, that box the lorry in as its moving.

The National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service (NAVCIS) has warned drivers and haulage companies to bolster security and vary their routes to try and curb the attacks.

You could safely guard your driver and cargo by installing a remote locking device for your trailer and cameras around your vehicle.
