Unexpected Twist: NHL Hit by Cargo Theft

Unexpected Twist: NHL Hit by Cargo Theft

NHL fans may already be aware: The National Hockey League has suffered a cargo theft, with far-reaching consequences for what should have been a legendary night.

Jaromir Jagr Bobblehead Night

Jaromir Jagr – a legend among the Pittsburgh Penguins, in the NHL and in other international leagues – was scheduled to be honored with a special bobblehead giveaway during a game against the San Jose Sharks on March 14. Fans eagerly awaited this tribute to one of hockey's legends. But cargo thieves had a different plan and intercepted the shipment of bobbleheads upon arrival in California. This left the Penguins organization with no choice but to give disappointed fans a voucher and an explanation.


Action taken

Kevin Acklin, the Penguins' president of business operations, quickly announced the involvement of state and federal authorities to recover the stolen goods. This has now been achieved.



While it is commendable that the Penguins are taking action, this cargo theft teaches us a valuable lesson. Cargo thieves are not picky; now is the time to get proactive. They don't care if they steal valuable goods, hard lemonade or Jaromir Jagr bobbleheads - as long as they can make a profit.


Prevention is always better than cure. Using a track-and-trace solution, companies can obtain real-time location data of their shipments. With the Tive 5G solo, available from Praxas, there is insight into location and optionally into temperature, moisture, light and shock detection.
