Singapore, Singapore Nov 3, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – DHL Express Asia Pacific Achieve Excellence with 100th TAPA Certification.

The TAPA APAC Board of management congratulates Ken Lee, CEO of Asia Pacific, DHL Express on their achievement in attaining their 100th TAPA “A” Certification. The TAPA certification is an internationally recognized industry standard that is given to companies that meet the requirements for secure warehousing or in-transit storage of high-value goods across the global supply chain. Renewed every three years, the TAPA certification is only awarded upon rigorous audit processes. It is highly sought after and is regarded as one of the most stringent independent security standards in the logistics and supply chain sectors.

The West Hanoi Service Center is DHL Express‘ 100th facility in the region (excluding China) to receive the TAPA Facility Security Requirements (FSR) certification ‘A’, demonstrating the highest security standards with 100th TAPA “A” certification in Asia Pacific.

Tony Lugg, TAPA Certified Expert and Chairman of TAPA APAC, said: “TAPA Class “A” is the highest level of our security standards and denotes a facility as one that offers “elevated security protection”. DHL Express’ 100th TAPA “A” certification in Asia Pacific is a significant achievement which enhances their position as an industry leader in the international express service domain. Customers everywhere are increasingly demanding their logistics partners build resilience and sustainability into their networks. DHL has certainly proved that their network is safe, secure, and certified by the internationally recognized TAPA Standards.”

There is an increasing number of manufacturers who are using the TAPA Facility Security Requirements for their warehousing and manufacturing sites. The standards provide a benchmark of risk, resilience, and security across the supply chain.

TAPA operates several Supply Chain Resilience Standards, such as the FSR (Facility Security Requirement), the TSR (Truck & Multi-Model) Security Standards, GSR (Guarding Security Standards), and more recently, the CSS (Cyber Security Standards) with strong focus on the cyber-attacks on the supply chain.

Tony Lugg went on to say “Manufacturers build the TAPA standards into their contractual agreements to reduce supply chain risks, increase resilience and sustainability of their overall supply chain. Companies like DHL Express are leading examples of where they have seen value add to their customers.

TAPA APAC’s Supply Chain Security Standards allow companies to select their preferred level of FSR, TSR, GSR, and CSS certification to suit their security requirements and those of their customers. Certification is achieved by working with our approved Independent Audit Bodies (IABs) or via Self-Certification.

Designed ‘by the industry, for the industry,’ the Association’s Standards are respected by Manufacturers, Shippers, Logistics Service Providers, Insurers, and Law Enforcement Agencies as best-in-class minimum security requirements to safeguard the Supply Chain.
