U-Freight has announced it has received Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) security accreditation for its logistics hub at Yuen Long, Hong Kong.

The latest approval follows earlier recertification in July of U-Freight’s Hong Kong import and logistics warehouse at Kwai Chung, as well as the recent accreditation of its Shanghai logistics hub.

In addition, U-Freight’s facilities at Changi Logistics Centre and Changi Airfreight Centre in Singapore, are accredited to TAPA FSR 2007 (Transported Asset Protection Association, Freight Security Requirements, 2007 revision). The Asia-based international freight services group said it is determined to play an active role in the development of freight security in the supply chain. It sees the TAPA accreditation scheme as a means of proving that it is committed to maintaining a secure environment, preserving the integrity of each of its freight facilities around the world and protecting its customers’ assets at every stage of the transportation process.

"This purpose-built factory incorporates the latest in security and logistical initiatives to ensure that U-Freight is at the cutting edge of international trade and logistics, now and into the future," according to Simon Wong, chief executive officer of the U-Freight Group.

"Certification and membership of TAPA complements our existing security arrangements and provides a globally acknowledged standard for the protection of goods in transit."
