A Year of Incredible Achievements: TAPA APAC’s Major Milestones in 2022!


TAPA APAC has consistently supported the growth of the logistics industry and actively participated in key industry forums. TAPA APAC will continuously dedicate to being a business enabler and leader in the supply chain sector, through its standards training, audit & certifications helping businesses in their resilience and sustainability missions.

Let us take a look back and revisit the three significant milestones for TAPA APAC in 2022.

DHL Express Asia Pacific Reaches the Apex of Excellence with 100th TAPA Certification

November 1 marks an exciting day for DHL Express and its customers in the Asia Pacific region, as the West Hanoi Service Center has been awarded the TAPA Facility Security Requirements (FSR) certification ‘A’, making it the 100th facility in the region (excluding China) to receive the esteemed certification.


Tony Lugg, TAPA APAC’s Chairman congratulated Ken Lee, CEO of Asia Pacific DHL Express on this remarkable achievement. The TAPA certification is an internationally recognized industry standard that is awarded to companies that meet the stringent requirements for secure warehousing or in-transit storage of high-value goods across the global supply chain.

The attainment of its 100th TAPA “A” certification by the West Hanoi Service Center is a testament to DHL Express’ commitment to delivering the highest quality of service and security to its customers. Having achieved this milestone, DHL Express can now confidently guarantee the security and safety of its customers’ goods and shipments across the Asia Pacific region. We look forward to DHL Express continuing to uphold the highest security standards in the industry and for more of their facilities to be awarded the TAPA certification in the future.

Tony Lugg went on to say “Manufacturers build the TAPA standards into their contractual agreements to reduce supply chain risks, increase resilience and sustainability of their overall supply chain. Companies like DHL Express are leading examples of where they have seen the value add to its customers. TAPA APAC’s Supply Chain Security Standards allow companies to select their preferred level of FSR, TSR, GSR and CSS certification to suit their security requirements and those of their customers. Certification is achieved by working with our approved Independent Audit Bodies (IABs) or via Self-Certification.
