PACTL obtains TAPA certification

PRESS RELEASE

June 11,2014: Shanghai Pudong International Airport Cargo Terminal Co., Ltd (PACTL) has successfully gained certification according to the Freight Security Requirements (FSR) of the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA). The type "A" classified certificate recently issued to PACTL proves that the company meets the highest TAPA requirements for activities related to the security of freight in transit. It is valid for three years.

A TAPA-approved authority carried out the audit under the terms of the 2011 TAPA Freight Security Requirements (FSR). This process included various areas such as an assessment of the perimeter fencing, the accessibility of thePACTL control office area, the facility dock and the warehouse – and an inspection of the security systems, security procedures and truck control processes.

"The fact that we've successfully passed the TAPA-audit proves that PACTL's security system meets the requirements of the industry for safe and secure handling and storage of high-value products. This further benefits the operational processes and therefore the success of our customers' business", says Yong Zhang, Head of Security of PACTL.

TAPA's Building Classification Assessment is designed to categorize storage, warehouse and distribution facilities in one of three categories; "A" represents the highest security level and "C" the lowest. TAPA is a widely accepted standard in North America, Europe and Asia.

PACTL is a Sino-German joint venture based at Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG). It brings together three shareholders – Shanghai Airport (Group) Co., Ltd (51%), Lufthansa Cargo AG (29%) and JHJ Logistics Management Co. Ltd (20%). PACTL offers handling services to airlines and forwarders transporting domestic and international air-freight via Pudong. Founded in 1999, the company has become one of the leading cargo terminal handlers in the world and has played a key role in establishing Pudong as one of the major cargo hubs in China. Based on recent figures, PACTL employs 2,200 people and serves 47 permanent customers and several charter operators. PACTL handled about 1.3 million tonnes of air-freight in 2013.

Founded in 1997, TAPA is an association of security professionals and related business partners from high-tech and high-value companies. They have joined forces to address the emerging security threats that are common to high-value industry supply chains. TAPA’s Freight Security Requirements (FSR) were set up to ensure the safe and secure in-transit storage and warehousing of any TAPA member’s assets throughout the world. It is an internationally recognized organisation designed to prevent the theft of any cargo of value such as electronics, pharmaceuticals, clothing, high-end foodstuffs, auto parts and building supplies.
