Level One is the highest validation that TAPA (Transported Asset Protection Association) awards in its TSR category (Trucking Security), demanding 100 per cent compliance from participating companies and their suppliers in meeting stringent security measures.

This validation is of particular interest to customers from the high-tech, automotive / industrial, healthcare industry as well as those who require day-definite secure transit for high-value and time-sensitive commodities. The increased security hardware and processes benefit customers with added peace-of-mind and more efficient tracking that allows point-to-point monitoring of valuable commodities.

These measures are designed to increase the effectiveness of transport security protocol, urge the adoption of more advanced security and tracking technology, as well as provide benchmarks for training staff in mitigating security threats both en-route and while static.

TNT, the leading global express integrator, pioneered the Asia Road Network five years ago. Last month (22 June), it announced a further $4.5 million euro (about S$7.61 million) investment in its successful Asia Road Network, bringing total investments to date to more than 12.5 million euro (about S$21.4 million). The Asia Road Network currently serves seven countries and 127 cities in Southeast Asia and China.

ďTNT has developed a strong reputation for security on the Asia Road Network. In the last five years we have enjoyed the lowest damage and best protection rates in the industry. This has rallied strong demand from some of the leading companies in the region, including those industries which require secure, day-definite transport such as the healthcare, high-tech and automotive & industrial sectors.Ē States Onno Boots, Regional Managing Director, TNT SEA & India

Gerry Power, Managing Director, TNT Malaysia and Brunei said, With our unique Asia Road Network (ARN) we are able to offer world class services to our customersí at the most efficient rates and without ever compromising on security. This certification is a significant achievement for TNT and a real plus for our customers in Malaysia, especially those operating in the high tech, automotive & industrial and O&G sectors who demand innovative, comprehensive and integrated security systems as part of their supply chains.

In Asia, TNT already has TAPA FSR certified integrated regional road and air hubs in Singapore and Bangkok, as well as its regional gateways and depots. This means that TNT is now the first globally to operate a complete door-to-door TAPA certified- logistics network.

Studies have shown that the benefits of supply chain security to customers are numerous Ė including improved delivery transit times, reduced theft in inventory management, improved asset visibility, improved on-time delivery to customers and higher customer confidence and loyalty.

ďOn the ARN we have invested in and deployed proactive, industry leading security measures both on the vehicle and in our security command centre. We place a strong emphasis on tracking, monitoring and securing our vehicles and precious cargo. Coinciding with the 5th anniversary of the launch of the ARN, we unveiled a new fleet of 41-foot trailer and truck combinations which incorporate state-of-the-art technology to meet the growing demand of our customers for security of their shipments.Ē States David Stenberg, General Manager, TNT Asia Road Network

TAPA TSR demands 100% compliance from Level One associates

According to TAPA research, more than 62% of losses incurred on road freight transport happens en-route, or while the truck is away from the secure depots.

TAPA measures have been established by security professionals within the high-tech industry to address the nature by which high-tech products and materials are transported by road. The TSR specifies the minimum acceptable security standards for assets traveling throughout the supply chain and the methods to be used in maintaining those standards.

TNT has taken the TAPA requirements a stage further by deploying CCTV cameras on their fleet. The cameras, which can be monitored remotely, observe the loading and unloading of the trailer, to ensure quality controls at all stages of the movement of the customerís goods. The cameras are also used to detect if the trailer is being followed and the control room is able to alert the police immediately of an eminent attack on the vehicle.

The Truck TSR validation further underpins TNTís ISO 28000 certification, which was awarded to TNT in 2009.The ISO 28000 audit covered TNTís integrated operational road and air solutions which included the Asia Road Network, cross border customs security and clearance processes. The audit also covered TNTís tailor-made security solutions for its customers, which encompassed a risk based assessment of the customers business within the supply chain.

The Asia Road Network is seamlessly linked to TNTís air networks and is supported by its multiple facilities across the region, most notably the S$20 million TNT Regional Hub Ė an integrated air and road hub located in Singapore.

Boots adds: ďThese new measures are game-changing and are especially relevant during the transportation of high value goods from the hi-tech, healthcare and automotive and industrial sectors. TNT is the first in the region to commit to 100% TAPA TSR Level One validation. Ever the innovator, TNT is yet again the benchmark for road and air freight security in Asia.Ē

TNTís TAPA TSR Validation was completed by TUV Rheinland.
