DHL centre in Beijing awarded TAPA certification

The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) Asia recognized DHL Express for having the most Freight Security Requirement (FSR) sites in Asia Pacific.

The company’s North Operating Center in Beijing is the 100th facility within the DHL Express network in Asia Pacific to be awarded the TAPA ‘FSR’ security certification. It is also the company’s 22nd facility in China to be TAPA ‘A’ certified.

According to the announcement, facilities are certified after an 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.

Ken Lee, CEO, Asia Pacific, DHL Express, said, “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% of total international express traffic, the second largest after Europe1, 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.”
