DB Schenker Achieves Highest Level of Transported Asset Protection Association Accreditation

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/17/14 -- DB Schenker's facility at Airway Drive in Mississauga, Ontario has officially achieved the highest level of Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) accreditation. The external certification body SGS performed the audit and certified DB Schenker. SGS is the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company.

Accreditation involved rigorous auditing of DB Schenker's security infrastructure and warehouse facility at 3210 Airway Drive - a multi-modal HUB for the region handling air, ocean and ground cargo. This is the first DB Schenker facility in Canada to achieve the accreditation.

According to Eric Dewey, President and CEO, Schenker of Canada Limited: "TAPA 'A' certification underlines our commitment to providing a safe and secure facility for our customer's goods and gives us a competitive advantage when dealing with the technology industry as we continue to grow in this sector. This achievement will benefit all of our freight forwarding modes and will assist in our growth efforts."

"A fundamental TAPA objective is to affect positive change in the security practices of the freight transportation and insurance communities," adds David Wilt, Chairman, TAPA, the Americas. "Major freight service providers are moving toward TAPA-recognized security standards for the care and handling of freight and are recognizing the inherent value of doing so."

TAPA Freight Security Requirements (FSR) have been established to ensure the safe and secure in-transit storage and warehousing of any TAPA member's assets throughout the world. The FSR specifies the minimum acceptable standards for security throughout the supply chain and the methods to be used in maintaining those standards. The FSR outlines the process and specification for suppliers to attain TAPA certification for their facilities and transit operations. It is the intention of TAPA members to select suppliers that meet or exceed TAPA certification requirements. The successful implementation of the FSR is dependent upon suppliers, TAPA certified auditors and buyers working in concert.

Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) is an association of security professionals and related business partners from high technology and high value companies who have organized for the purpose of addressing the emerging security threats that are common to the high value industry supply chain.
