PACTL obtains TAPA certification


Shanghai Pudong International Airport Cargo Terminal Co., Ltd (PACTL) has successfully gained certification according to the Freight Security Requirements (FSR) of the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA). The type “A” classified certificate recently issued to PACTL indicates that the company meets the highest TAPA requirements for activities related to the security of freight in transit. The certification is valid for three years.

A TAPA-approved authority carried out the audit under the terms of the 2011 TAPA Freight Security Requirements (FSR). This process included various areas such as an assessment of the perimeter fencing, the accessibility of the control office area, the facility dock and the warehouse – and an inspection of the security systems, security procedures and truck control processes.

“The fact that we’ve successfully passed the TAPA-audit proves that PACTL’s security system meets the requirements of the industry for safe and secure handling and storage of high-value products. This further benefits the operational processes and therefore the success of our customers’ business”, says Yong Zhang, head of security of PACTL.

TAPA’s Building Classification Assessment is designed to categorize storage, warehouse and distribution facilities in one of three categories; “A” represents the highest security level and “C” the lowest. TAPA is a widely accepted standard in North America, Europe and Asia.
