Schmitz Cargobull reefer semi-trailers are TAPA-ready
The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) is an organisation made up of manufacturers, logistics service providers, freight forwarders and law enforcement authorities that applies proven methods and procedures to improve the security of valuable assets around the world. Its goal is to reduce losses in the supply chain.
Box body semi-trailer equipped in accordance with highest requirement level
In order to meet the TAPA TSR1 requirements a networked acoustic alarm system has been integrated into TrailerConnect®. This triggers an alarm if the trailer is accessed by an unauthorised third party. TrailerConnect® is the 100% integrated telematics infrastructure from Schmitz Cargobull. Alongside this acoustic alarm system, the new TL4 electronic door locking system ensures that goods are protected from unauthorised access. These smart and innovative products increase process and transport security.
“This can only be achieved with the networked infrastructure of the TrailerConnect® telematics solution from Schmitz Cargobull,” says Volker Flatau, Head of Product Line Cool Freight, Schmitz Cargobull. “We are pleased to be able to offer our customers a reefer semi-trailer equipped to the highest TAPA safety standard ex works and to contribute to greater supply chain security. We will remain in close contact with the TAPA organisation and also continue to help shape future enhanced security requirements, so as to provide the highest level of security to our customers at all times.”
