Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) Certification

According to the European Union, the theft of high-value, high-risk products moving in supply chains in Europe costs business in excess of € 8.2 billion a year. The theft from organised criminals is increasing.

The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) is a unique forum that unites global manufacturers, logistics providers, freight carriers, law enforcement agencies, and other stakeholders with the common aim of reducing losses from international supply chains.
