DHL Express, the world’s leading express company, has achieved a top score of 98.38% for the renewal of its Technology Asset Protection Association (TAPA) certification of the Jordan gateway, for another 2 years. The international security accreditation continues the company’s outstanding TAPA certification record both in Jordan and the wider Middle East region and highlights DHL’s continued commitment to robust security benchmarks.
“DHL Express Jordan first received its TAPA certification in 2008, following the opening of the new facility at Queen Alia International Airport. This high score illustrates our commitment to ensuring we continue to set security standards in the region. We have invested a significant amount into the development of our gateway facility since its launch, and this accreditation serves to further highlight our state-of-the-art facility and network capabilities.” said Mr. Yazan Haddadin, Quality and Security Manager, DHL Express Jordan.
The accreditation follows a comprehensive audit which was conducted at DHL’s gateway facility at Queen Alia International Airport by an independent representative. The audit was aimed at ensuring compliance with all Freight Security Requirements (FSRs), which specify acceptable security standards throughout the supply chain, as well as the methods used to maintain those standards. Criteria included elements such as access control to the premises, CCTV recording dates, security vetting as well as on-going security training for all employees.
“Jordan is an important market for us, and we will continue to strengthen our position as a key business partner for our customers here. Our continued focus on providing quality facilities and the highest levels of customer service is testament to this,” added Haddadin.
TAPA is a global forum of security, insurance and logistics professionals established to ensure the safe and secure transport, storage and warehousing of TAPA member’s assets throughout the world.
