TAPA sees record take-up

[ March 13, 2018   //   ]

The Transported Asset Protection Association’s (TAPA) says there has been a record take-up of its supply chain security standards, with TAPA-certified facilities and trucking operators now to be found in 60 countries. There was a 16.6% increase in the number of Facility Security Requirements (FSR) certifications and a 41.5% growth in companies with Trucking Security Requirements (TSR) certifications. As of the end of 2017, there were 645 FSR locations in EMEA and 126 companies meeting the TSR security standard.

They contributed to the overall 46.6% rise in FSR certifications and 85.3% of TSR certifications since the Association launched its ‘STEP UP, STAND OUT’ campaign two years ago to encourage more manufacturers and logistics service providers to adopt its standards. Newly-released data from TAPA’s Incident Information Service (IIS) for 2017 shows a 10.3% rise in recorded cargo crimes in the EMEA region, with a total of 2,880 incidents.
