Security equals efficiency, says TAPA

[ July 2, 2020   //   ]

The Transport Asset Protection Association (TAPA) said that unprecedented focus on the resilience of global supply chains in the ‘new normal’ post-coronavirus world will lead to wider adoption of industry security standards as it marked the latest 2020 revisions of its Facility Security Requirements (FSR) and Trucking Security Requirements (TSR) in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The 2020 versions of FSR and TSR include new additions to support supply chain resilience and improve cost efficiency including  a new FSR Multi-site option and a Modular approach for TSR to protect supply chains using vans, hard-sided trailers, soft-sided trailers and transporting ocean containers by road. TSR 2020 also provides optional additions covering monitoring, rail transfer/tracking, locking, information security, and security escorts.
