Asia Pacific: CJ Rokin Logistics and Supply Chain Co., Ltd, the leading China smart contract logistics service provider, has achieved Trucking Security Requirements (TSR) Level 2 certification from the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) for 30 of its road transportation trucks in China.
Internationally accepted and considered one of the most rigorous independent certifications in the industry, the 5A logistics company, CJ Rokin, is now recognized by TAPA for its industry-leading security standards which include real-time monitoring systems, advanced security hardware and strict security management processes.
Cargo crime is one of the biggest challenges for manufacturers of high value, high-risk products and their logistics service providers. Having delivered technology-based customized logistics services by integrating warehousing, long haul transportation and distribution since 1985, this TAPA certification enables CJ Rokin to secure and maintain the minimum security standards required for assets within their supply chain. They can now provide accurate information and data to reduce future incidences of theft on 30 of their trucks.
Case studies show that implementing TSR improved operational performance increases driver safety and visibility and on-time delivery performance. The TSR training, attended by the project lead, took 6 months to implement from set-up to successful certification.
Tony Lugg, TAPA APAC Chairman, said: “TAPA congratulates CJ Logistics in attaining Level 2 TSR certification in China. This is a great achievement and positive step forward in securing the supply chain for its customers”.
The adoption of TAPA certification is a seamless connection between TAPA’s TSR security system and CJ Rokin’s safety management system. It’s a full affirmation of the operating efficiency and operation quality of CJ Rokin’s TSR system.
Jae H. Auh, CEO of CJ Rokin, said that “CJ Rokin has made continuous and effective efforts to integrate the TAPA standards to ensure that each item can obtain the highest level of safety control and build a safe platform providing service that customers can trust. TSR Level 2 certification demonstrates CJ Rokin’s commitment to safe and secure road transportation.’’
Tony Lugg concluded “CJ Rokin have shown their determination to secure the supply chain by using TAPA’s best-known methods written by Global Security Supply Chain Experts. TAPA members who make this type of investment into security were found to have three times fewer losses than non-TAPA members, as well as improving the operational performance including on-time delivery in perfect condition”.
