The SCHUNCK GROUP (, the leading insurance broker for the haulage and logistics sector in Germany has since December 2018 collaborated with GmbH ( offers an innovative alarm plan for tarpaulins on trucks and semitrailers. With this, SCHUNCK is responding to client demands for better protection against damage and theft due to tarpaulin slashing. SCHUNCK clients benefit from an exclusive discount.

Thomas Wicke, managing director of the SCHUNCK GROUP and its marketing director had this to say: „I am very happy that we are able to offer our clients a greater degree of security with this collaboration. As a leading insurance broker in the logistics and haulage sector, we know that damages from tarpaulin slashing and resulting thefts have been on the rise. Simply the damage done to the tarpaulin is bad enough.

With its THEFTEX® system, has developed a security system that offers cost efficient and effective protection.“ The THEFTEX® system functions in the simplest possible way: If a thief cuts the truck tarpaulin open to see what the truck or the semitrailer is loaded with, a loud alarm signal sounds. In addition, the vehicle operator is informed of the incident by having the geodetic position coordinates transmitted to it.

SCHUNCK clients get an exclusive discount

SCHUNCK GROUP clients are given an exclusive discount in connection with this collaboration. For every tarpaulin alarm ordered, clients are given a discount in the amount of euro 400.
The alarm tarpaulin can be ordered via the website. Our clients get the discount by entering their customer number.

Increased security with THEFTEX®

The THEFTEX® alarm system consists of three components: the control unit, the data package and the alarm system which comes in heights of 100 cm and 150 cm. It can simply be welded onto existing tarpaulins; the installation time is about 90 minutes. The flexibility of the tarpaulin is not noticeably impaired due to its total weight of about 22 kg.

Because it has its own source of electricity, the system is independent of the truck’s computer network. The power lasts for about 12 years regardless of an external power source. The THEFTEX® control unit can be supplied with different cable harnesses and thus can also be used as an alarm system to secure tailgates in vehicles with box bodies. Retrofitting of the THEFTEX® system is eligible for de minimis aid.

Andreas Giessler, managing director of GmbH, founded in 2017, is looking forward to collaborating with the Munich insurance broker: „With the SCHUNCK GROUP we have a collaboration partner that has been at home in the logistics and haulage sector for decades and knows the problems that tarpaulin slashing causes.“

SCHUNCK – more than just insured.
