TAPA Freight Security Requirements (FSR)

What is Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) FSR?

Freight Security Requirements (FSR) are governed by the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) to ensure that their members’ high value and high-tech products and materials are securely handled, warehoused and transported.

Introduced at a time when companies seem to be facing increasing threats to their supply chains, the Requirements outline the processes and specifications necessary for suppliers to attain TAPA certification for their facilities and transit operations. They specify minimum acceptable security standards for products travelling through the supply chain and illustrate the methods by which those standards should be maintained. 

FSR benefits

Many of the world’s largest high technology goods manufacturers and distributors now build FSR into their contracts, while transportation companies refer to FSR as a business differentiator and a true ‘world benchmark’. Compliance to the FSR and certification by LR will benefit you by: assurance that your management systems incorporate the latest requirements for safe and secure transportation, handling and warehousing of hi-tech and high-risk goods helps smooth the flow of international trade added visibility to prospective clients making them a cost-effective investment.
