DHL Express has recorded a new milestone after the company’s North Operating Center in Beijing became the 100th facility within the DHL Express network in Asia Pacific to be awarded the prestigious TAPA ‘FSR’ security certification. It is also the company’s 22nd facility in China to be TAPA ‘A’ certified. The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) Asia recognised DHL Express for having the most Freight Security Requirement (FSR) sites in Asia Pacific.
The internationally-recognised TAPA certification is a highly sought-after logistics security accreditation and certification and considered to be one of the industry’s most rigorous independent certification. Facilities are certified after a detailed audit conducted by independent TAPA-trained auditors on areas such as the way high value goods are handled, warehoused and transported as they move throughout the global supply chain.
“Obtaining TAPA certification for our facilities is critical to ensuring the safety and security of our facilities and shipments as this is an increasing concern of our customers. With Asia Pacific accounting for 25 per cent of total international express traffic, the second largest after Europe, it is critical that we have a robust system to safeguard the integrity of shipments that we handle. This achievement fortifies our position as the industry leader in Asia Pacific,” said Ken Lee, CEO, Asia Pacific, DHL Express.
