  • How can TAPA help your business fight cargo crime?

    TAPA’s Security Requirements are recognized globally as the industry standard for cargo facility and transport security. Our Incident Information Service (IIS) constantly captures and shares data, enabling you to use the latest cargo crime intelligence to avoid incident ‘hotspots’, protect your goods in transit and, if required, to report and trace stolen property. TAPA regularly consults at the highest level of relevant government departments and with law enforcement agencies to support the requirements of its members in their campaign to reduce crime.

    Conferences in the Asia region bring together security specialists to listen to presentations on the latest solutions in the fight against crime, to share best practice and to network with like-minded companies. TAPA’s quarterly newsletter communication, lobby groups and working parties will bring to light latest industry updates and many other security-related issues.

    If you manufacture or provide transport and logistics services for high value products, TAPA membership should be critical to the success of your business, safeguarding your goods, ensuring customer orders are fulfilled and protecting your business reputation and financial performance.
