Bolloré Logistics adopts TAPA worldwide

OEGSTGEEST, Netherlands: April 07, 2016. Bolloré Logistics, with a presence in 102 countries, is to certify all its offices with the Transported Asset Protection Association's (TAPA) Facility Security Requirements.

Christian Teillet, corporate director of Quality, Health, Safety & Environment at Bolloré said: "TAPA certification is more and more required by our customers during tender activities. We see clients paying more and more attention to their subcontractors in the security chain of their goods.

TAPA banner 2016"The main benefits of TAPA's security standards are they require you to have in place robust processes to continuously ensure a secure environment and they give confidence to our clients in our ability to manage their goods in a secure way," he added.

Six months after it launched an awareness campaign, TAPA said 463 logistics facilities and trucking operations have achieved certification to its security standards in the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region – a rise of 14 percent.

The companies include Alha-Air Lines Handling, Aramex, Bos Logistics, CEVA Logistics, DHL Express, DHL Global Forwarding, DPDgroup, DSV, Flextronics, Gebrüder Weiss, Georgi Transporte, Ingram Micro, LOG-IN, Nightline Group, Nippon Express, Panalpina, DB Schenker, TNT Express, UPS, Van der Valk Transport, Verhoeven International Transport and VVT Europa.

Thorsten Neumann, TAPA EMEA chairman Thorsten Neumann commented: "This is a very positive start but it is only the beginning. The major global logistics service providers operate hundreds of locations each and we hope they will continue to grow their TAPA certification programmes at a faster rate.

Neumann added that virtually all products moving in supply chains are now at risk of theft. Last year TAPA EMEA recorded 1,515 new cargo crimes, a five-year high, in 29 countries including 70 crimes involving losses in excess of €100,000. The association said a study carried out by the European Parliament suggested cargo crime costs businesses €8.2 billion a year. http://www.tapaemea.org/
