Transported Asset Protection Association

Standards Lead to Solutions

When you join TAPA, you’re aligning your company or organization with an internationally recognized leader in the
fight against cargo crime. TAPA AMERICAS represents one of three primary branches of TAPA worldwide -- the other
two being TAPA EMEA (Europe and Africa) and TAPA APAC (Asia/Pacific). These branches include chapters in South
Africa and Mexico, with new chapters developing in other countries plagued by cargo crime. Each TAPA branch or
chapter participates in the worldwide organization while also addressing the needs of its own regional members.

HVTT Asset Theft: A Shared Problem

HVTT (high value theft targeted) asset theft poses a major problem for many industries. Theft of electronics, pharmaceuticals, clothing, high-end foodstuffs, auto parts, building supplies and almost any other cargo of value is a daily event in the Americas. This type of crime leads to billions of dollars in lost revenue, compromised brand integrity, and in some cases harm to consumers.
