Supply chain security in the spotlight

[ June 13, 2017   //   ]

The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) says it will hold its biggest ever global in London on 25 & 26 October. Delegates will hear how the increased use of technologies in the supply chain – such as robotics in warehouses, driverless trucks, drones and 3D printing – is expected to result in a growing threat from increasingly technically-advanced criminal gangs that continue to see goods in transit as an ‘easy target’.

Speakers already confirmed for the event will include senior executives from Amazon, Microsoft, DHL Life Sciences, DB Schenker, global insurers and international law enforcement agencies. TAPA also plans to provide live demonstrations of some of the new technologies being developed for use in the supply chain process.
