TAPA TSR - Trucking Security Requirements
The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) developed the internationally accepted standards TAPA FSR (Facility Security Requirements) and TAPA TSR (Trucking Security Requirements) for companies in the transport and logistics sector to ensure the security of goods and cargos in the supply chain. TAPA TSR specifies requirements for their secure transport.
How it works
The requirements of TAPA TSR are concerned with transport. This means the equipment of trucks (motor vehicles and trailers), processes and their control within the organization as well as a special communications infrastructure. Here, TAPA TSR distinguishes between three categories (A, B and C), based on the number of trucks in an organization. TSR also encompasses three security levels (Level 1-3). If your organization fulfils all requirements, you will receive a certificate valid for three years. After the certificate has been issued, you as an organization are required to carry out an annual re-certification until the self-assessment during the third year. The results of these self-assessments may be requested by TAPA.
Benefits of TAPA TSR:
- Improvement of protection for high-value goods at risk of theft throughout the supply chain
- Implementation of security measures using a risk-based approach
- Competitive advantages and improved image due to transparency and building of trust
- Systematic reduction of liability
