Our Members

As a worldwide coalition of manufacturers, shippers, carriers, insurers, service providers, law enforcement and government agencies, TAPA includes every type of company or organization facing the problem of cargo crime within the transportation supply chain. Our members work together to prevent these crimes through the sharing of information, development of supply chain security standards, and cooperation with government agencies.

Progressive companies now recognize security departments and professionals as important business partners and security advisors. Knowledge is power, and today's security professionals can gain invaluable knowledge through TAPA participation. This knowledge can lead to reduced losses, smoother supply chain operation, increased customer convenience and satisfaction, stronger market penetration through reduced “gray market” activity, and protection of brand integrity.
