Security concerns when shipping to Namibia
There is a lot of piracy in the history books pertaining to shipment coming and going from Namibia. And even though the Namibia government has tried to patrol the waterways more and has supported new on board procedures for if there is a pirate attack, some vessels are still compromised and shipments are occasionally seized by pirates. In addition to the ocean cargo freight liners being targeted, road freight liners in Namibia experience a high amount of theft as well. This is typically chalked up to criminals within the country but others have pointed the fingers at government officials tipping off bandits to when a load of deliveries has cleared Customs and is released for final delivery.
