Each year, goods valued between eight to ten billion Euros disappear during transportation in Europe alone. The verb “disappear” covers criminal acts such as abduction, burglary and theft. TAPA was formed for the purpose of reducing such losses along the supply chain. To achieve this, TAPA has developed globally recognized security standards for cargo companies and transport security. Both standards – TAPA TSR and TAPA FSR – are based on a systematic and risk-based approach.

TAPA TSR - Trucking Security Requirements

The requirements of TAPA TSR are concerned with transport itself, i.e. the truck and related equipment (motor vehicles and trailers), processes and their control within the organization as well as a special communications infrastructure.

TAPA FSR - Facility Security Requirements

TAPA FSR contains requirements for safe and secure storage and warehousing of items of property. This standard is needed in case of risk and/or when required by a customer or logistics service provider
