DHL Resilience360 & TAPA to tackle rising cargo crime

DHL Resilience360 and TAPA, the leading industry association for supply chain security, are leveraging their respective strengths to collaborate on cargo crime intelligence. The collaboration will benefit Resilience360 customers and TAPA members through increased visibility of cargo theft issues, one of the top 10 supply chain risk trends identified in Resilience360’s 2018 Annual Risk Report.

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.

“This is a unique partnership. TAPA EMEA is a recognized industry leader in supply chain security, and TAPA members who are also utilizing Resilience360 for end-to-end supply chain risk management will gain expanded visibility of cargo theft issues,” explains Tobias Larsson, Founder and CEO of Resilience360.

“Our customers will be able to view this data in the context of the other geopolitical, social, natural disaster, and labor issues reported by Resilience360.”

DHL’s Resilience360 Supply Chain Risk Management solution provides businesses with the tools to predict, assess and mitigate the risks of supply chain disruption. TAPA’s cargo theft data will complement the visibility provided by Resilience360 to other supply chain risks impacting customers’ manufacturing and transportation networks. Resilience360 will support TAPA’s cargo crime benchmarking through the sharing of aggregate cargo theft data.

“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,” says Thorsten Neumann, President and CEO of TAPA EMEA.

The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) is a unique forum that unites global manufacturers, logistics providers, freight carriers, law enforcement agencies, and other stakeholders with the common aim of reducing losses from international supply chains.

TAPA reduces cargo theft through the development and application of global security standards, recognized industry practices, technology, education, benchmarking, regulatory collaboration, and the proactive identification of crime trends and supply chain security threats.

Resilience360 uses innovative technologies like predictive analytics and machine learning algorithms to obtain near real-time visibility of global supply chains, identify risks, and proactively manage potential disruptions to operations.
