The certificate is awarded to companies in recognition of their advanced security systems and measures. According the DHL, the certificate by TAPA is recognition of DHL Express Kenya logistics expertise and will go a long way in attracting high value shipments as security and protection of goods remains a major priority.
“The re-certification by TAPA is yet another vote of confidence in our services. We are delighted to be recognised by such a globally respected industry organisation,” said Alan Cassels, DHL Express Kenya Country Manager.
To achieve such certification, companies are expected to constantly use the associations’ incident information services that capture and share data, which enables industry players to use the latest cargo crime intelligence to avoid incident ‘hotspots’, protect goods in transit and, if required, report and trace stolen property.
This comes even as cargo crime remains the biggest supply chain challenge to manufacturers of high value goods, government departments and law enforcement agencies.
“Today, organized crime rings are operating globally. TAPA creates a platform to help businesses fight back against cargo crime by means of real-time intelligence and the latest preventative security measures to protect goods in the supply chain,” Cassels said.
