Shipping News Feature

CHINA – Global supply chain and freight management company CEVA Logistics has had its Chinese road haulage division awarded the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) TSR-2008 accreditation. CEVA claims that this makes them the first global supply chain provider to be awarded the TAPA Trucking Security Requirements (TSR) validation in mainland China.

“At CEVA we have always excelled in applying TAPA standards to our operations throughout the world. Being the first global supply chain company to achieve this validation for our domestic operations in China underscores our commitment to safety and TAPA standards,” commented Ditlev Blicher, CEVA’s Executive Vice President for North Asia.

The TAPA TSR certification is given to companies that meet required standards in protecting their clients’ goods throughout the truck transport phase of supply chain logistics.

The new standard is recognition of CEVA’s efforts to continue the expansion and improvement of their services in the burgeoning Chinese domestic market, with Blicher adding that: “With the steady increase in domestic transportation volumes, the safeguarding of our customers’ cargo is now more important than ever.”

CEVA Logistics had already been awarded TAPA qualification for its Thai operations in November, 2009.
