I heard/understand that there are minimal checks on outgoing freight...

you simply say on the documentation what is inside the container, and there is minimal verification of contents.

Is that right?

Even so, Ferrari theft is a microscopic risk. They're just too easy to find.

There is not much you can do with a stolen 360 spider apart from take it for a joy ride  or ship it far away.

true, but why the middle east of all countries??

and we have port botany fenced off by GPS geofences to provide alerts upon entry. Amazing what goes on!


Dean, can you explain this. Does it help this guy in any way???

Um, not in my experience. I have been involved with a few vehicle Exports before and Customs give you the three degree. But in saying that, all the paperwork was filled out as it should have been and everything declared.
Customs wanted proof of ownership and as much evidence that could be given as to why the export, etc.

And even if it was declared that the container held something else, they ALL goes thru the X-ray before being released for export - but also in saying that, that is what I have been told second hand.

I would imagine that trying to get the Ferrari out of the country would be very risky???

Hi I am not sure.

We were told years ago to put a geofence around port botany by one of the major insurers.

We thought it was a good idea.

If any prestige vehicles fitted with our tracking devices enter the area, we get an alert in our control room.
Systems can  also send  email alerts to the owners blackberry's etc.
In the old days we use to use SMS, but this gets expensive if you are going in and out of areas frequently.


It is pretty difficult to steal a modern AMG, M, Porsche, Ferrari, Lambo etc. 
And quite frankly our statistics show that unless you live in Sydney..there is little chance of getting one of these cars stolen.

I am a good authority on this as i have a degree in Electronics Engineering  and i spent 20 years of my life designing security systems for cars (up until 5 years ago).
I have done design work for car companies here and overseas.


So the only way to steal these cars is to
  • Tow them
    Car Jack them
    Steal the keys...generally by breaking into the home whilst people are sleeping or on holiday.   


The GPS tracking devices enter a sleep mode when the ignition is turned off so that they conserve power, minimise 3G broadband costs and don't flatten the battery.
They have daily periodical health check wakeups
They wake upon G force detection  or ignition   or alarm trigger detection.

They use the GPS to detect towing...This is a parameter which is set...
for example vehicle moving 20-180kph for greater than 30 seconds  with minimum 5 satellite GPS Loc and ignition off..Then send an alert.

Devices also send alerts for
Low Power
Battery Disconnected
Backup Battery Low
Antenna's Disconnected etc.  Yes even if the GSM antenna's are disconnected or cut, you can still manage to get a signal out.
and of course much more...there are 201 definable alerts based on

  • Condition of inputs ( 8 Inputs)
    Time Schedule
    Day Schedule
    Date Schedule
    Geofence Condition..Inside, Outside, Entering Exiting
    Power Condition
    Backup Battery Condition
    Antenna Connectivity

Upon condition being generated, the GPS can be programmed to
  • Poll an event to our data centre...Control Room monitors events
    Log an event into the blackbox recorder (similar to an aircraft.....yes we know where the car has been down to 1 second intervals and how fast it has travelled we have clocked stolen cars to 180kph in suburban street  in the wee hours of the morning)
    Automatically set outputs.

For example our distributor in Pakistan has set up their stolen vehicle parameters as such:-

Car exits Karachi City area  Then  Automatically Kill the ignition....(unfortunately you can't do that here)

We sell in about 75 Countries..But Australia, UK, France and Pakistan are our majors.

Sounds like best bet to not be tracked is to always drive a flogged car >180kph - or let's say - "drive it like you stole it"
