welcome 2 IN THE CHAIR A global problem needs a world class solution


As this is our fi rst issue of 2019, I want to take this opportunity to wish all our global TAPA members and all supply chain security stakeholders a very happy, heathy and secure new year.


Over the past 12 months, we have been bringing the TAPA Family closer together, maintaining the respective strengths and knowledge of our Americas, Asia Pacifi c and Europe, Middle East & Africa regions while reinforcing one global brand and leveraging best practice, ideas and expertise from across our international network.


This issue of Vigilant is a positive reminder of TAPA’s global reach and the growing presence we are building in markets all over the world. It highlights the progress we are making in India, discusses the take-up of our new Parking Security Requirements (PSR) in Austria, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Romania, Slovakia and South Africa, and reports the time and cost savings we are delivering for our members in Asia Pacifi c through the launch of online training webinars.


As we start a new year more determined than ever to increase our global membership, Security Standards certifi cations and cargo crime incident intelligence, it is more important than ever to look for new opportunities to extend our presence because supply chains face risks everywhere.


In this edition, you will read references to the annual €2.2 billion cost of cargo crime in Germany, where some 26,000 trucks are stolen


‘Supply chains are dynamic and fast-moving – and also highly visible. These factors play into the hands of criminals and increase the vulnerabilities companies, their employees and suppliers face on a daily basis. This is why, in 2019, the world of TAPA must grow.’


annually, losses of $800 million in 2018 from supply chains in Brazil, and the $4.6 billion cost of transport-related crime in Mexico. Although it remains a constant challenge to gather intelligence on crimes of this scale and to obtain regular and accurate incident data from the majority of countries where TAPA members are present, we all know the risks that are out there.


TAPA’s role is to help its members manage these risks as eff ectively as possible and to create an environment where we can learn and benefi t from each other’s experiences. We have very knowledgeable and highly-committed Boards of Directors in each region as well as subject matter experts supporting all our working groups. But never assume we have everything covered – because it is impossible to guarantee this.


Supply chains are dynamic and fast-moving – and also highly visible. These factors play into the hands of criminals and increase the vulnerabilities companies, their employees and suppliers face on a daily basis. This is why, in 2019, the world of TAPA must grow. And it will.


In the months ahead, you will see and read more about how we are extending our global footprint and, in doing so, creating more benefi ts for TAPA members everywhere. If you can help increase our reach, we’re waiting to hear from you.


TONY LUGG Chair, Asia Pacifi c
