TAPA, the Transported Asset Protection Association, announced a new program to enhance the protection of High-Value Theft Targeted (HVTT) assets in the transportation supply chain. This multi-faceted program features a new interactive website and an expanded marketing campaign that is designed to improve collaboration throughout the TAPA community.
TAPA is a worldwide coalition of manufacturers, shippers, carriers, insurers, service providers, law enforcement and government agencies concerned with the risks of criminal activity against HVTT cargo in the transportation supply chain. TAPA members work together to prevent theft and other crimes against the transportation supply chain through the sharing of information, the development of supply chain security standards, and cooperation with government agencies.These standards, and TAPA’s certification of supply chain facilities play a critical role in the fight against cargo crime.
TAPA’s new website features integrated mapping and route planning features; detailed information for certified sites; improved search features and expanded member descriptions with video, maps and other images; enhanced security, including tiered members-only access; a dynamic events calendar with improved registration features; and full CMSfor administrative updating and control.
These initiatives can help manufacturers, shippers, law enforcement and government agencies work together more effectively to reduce losses in the supply chain, and help companies preserve their brand integrity, minimize customer inconvenience, and ultimately improve their bottom lines.
