About TAPA

According to the European Union, the theft of high value, high risk products moving in supply chains in Europe costs businesses in excess of € 8.2 billion a year. The threat from organized criminals is increasing and becoming more violent. They must be stopped.

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.

Today, in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, The Americas and Asia, TAPA’s membership is at its highest ever level – and growing month-on-month. The Association’s 600+ members include many of the world’s leading manufacturing brands as well as their logistics and transport providers with combined annual sales of over US$900 billion.

So, how can TAPA help your business fight cargo crime?

  • The Association’s Security Requirements are recognised globally as the industry standard for cargo facility and transport security
  • TAPA’s 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
  • Monthly newsletter communication

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.

TAPA statistics prove that its members are measurably reducing cargo crime compared to the rest of the industry.
