Shipping News Feature

WORLDWIDE – DHL's Resilience360, a system which uses cutting edge technologies such as predictive analytics and machine learning algorithms to obtain near real-time visibility of global supply chains, identify risks, and proactively manage potential disruptions, is to partner up with the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) to further secure such shipping supply chains.

The pair say TAPA's cargo theft data will complement the visibility provided by Resilience360 to other supply chain risks impacting customers' manufacturing and transportation networks. Meanwhile Resilience360 will support TAPA's cargo crime benchmarking through the sharing of aggregate cargo theft data. Thorsten Neumann, President and CEO of TAPA EMEA, observed:

"This partnership with one of the leading supply chain risk management platforms supports TAPA's important role as the security expert network for everyone in the supply chain, and will increase our ability to provide our members with the best sources of cargo theft intelligence to help them increase their supply chain resilience. As the leading association in this field, TAPA is looking to develop more of these types of partnerships to help tackle rising cargo crime in the EMEA region and globally.”

Through this partnership, both sides will work together to provide a more holistic view of cargo security threats in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region. In addition, TAPA EMEA members who are also Resilience360 customers will be able to easily view TAPA cargo crime data within the Resilience360 system. Tobias Larsson, Founder and CEO of Resilience360, commented:

"This is a unique partnership. TAPA EMEA is a recognised industry leader in supply chain security, and TAPA members who are also utilising Resilience360 for end-to-end supply chain risk management will gain expanded visibility of cargo theft issues. Our customers will be able to view this data in the context of the other geopolitical, social, natural disaster, and labour issues reported by Resilience360."
