TAPA EMEA intelligence service

The TAPA EMEA Intelligence System (TIS) is a risk management ad loss prevention tool which enhances the security and resilience of members’ supply chains by providing insight into recorded cargo crimes as well as information on facilities, trucking operators and secure parking locations which meet the TAPA EMEA Security Standards. 

TIS uses a dashboard to help users quickly and easily search for the current and historic cargo crime incident data they need. It features enhanced mapping and route planning capabilities and allows users to filter data by a wide variety of topics, including searches for: 

  • Type of incident
  • Location of incident
  • Modus operandi
  • Value of stolen products
  • Products target
  • Region
  • Country

Launched in 2022 to replace the former Incident Information Service in the EMEA region, TIS is a secure and password-protected tool which allows users to source the relevant data and intelligence they need and to download reports to support their supply chain security processes.  

As well as giving users access to all the cargo crime intelligence reported daily to TAPA EMEA, TIS enables users to see facilities and trucking operators which have TAPA EMEA Facility Security Requirements (FSR) and Trucking Security Requirements (TSR) supply chain security certifications. They can also search the Association’s growing database of secure truck parking locations across the region and identity parking place operators participating in the Parking Security Requirements (PSR) Standard programme. The tool currently includes secure parking information for sites in 14 countries in the region. 

As a tailored supply chain resilience intelligence tool, TIS is TAPA EMEA’s most advanced and intuitive system to help companies understand the impact of cargo theft losses on individual routings, in local markets, regionally, nationally and internationally, based on cargo crime incidents recorded by the Association. TAPA EMEA members can also use TIS to identify and contact law enforcement agencies in the EMEA region. 

TAPA EMEA members use TIS to protect the security of their employees, assets, and cargoes by gaining a greater understanding of the regions and local areas where cargo crime groups are most active. This enables companies to plan their supply chains most securely to avoid known ‘hotspots’ for criminal attacks. 

TAPA EMEA’s TIS system is widely respected as one of the most effective cargo crime intelligence tools and an effective contributor to loss prevention and supply chain resilience.

Intelligence reports & alerts

As well as the searchable TIS database, TAPA EMEA also uses recorded incident data to provide members with:

  • Incident alerts 
  • A monthly cargo crime report in TAPA EMEA’s digital magazine, Vigilant
  • The TIS Cargo Theft Annual Report 
Reporting incidents to TIS

The TIS database does not request any company information when collecting intelligence on cargo crimes and losses. Victims of losses remain anonymous. 

For each incident reported to TIS, entries can be made for:

  • Date of incident
  • Type of incident, i.e. Theft from Trailer
  • Type of M.O used, i.e. Deceptive Pick Up
  • Type of location, i.e. Destination Facility
  • Products stolen/targeted
  • Products Details
  • Loss value 
  • Incident description
  • Media report link
  • Address where the crime took place
  • Country

The TIS database collates cargo crime intelligence from:

  • TAPA EMEA members
  • Insurers
  • Law Enforcement Agencies 
  • Media sources 
  • Other supply chain security stakeholders

Incident reports or media story links on cargo crimes can also be sent to tisteam@tapaemea.org

Secure parking online tool

TIS also integrates with TAPA EMEA’s Secure Parking Online Tool, helping transport planners to see and select secure truck parking locations on their chosen routes for when drivers are required to take mandatory rest breaks.
