TES Achieves TAPA FSR ‘A’ as Part of Corporate Security Program


  • TAPA Certification supports TES’s commitment to client safety, security and sustainability
  • TES is one of the only IT lifecycle companies in the world to meet the FSR Audit’s stringent requirements


SINGAPORE (05 February 2020) – Today, TES announced that it has achieved re-certification of Facility Security Requirements (FSR) Audit Report by the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA). TAPA is an international forum focused on reducing losses and building resilience in international supply chains.

TAPA’s approval of the FSR Audit reaffirms TES’s commitment to upholding best-in-class security standards. By utilizing proven security systems and procedures, TES can protect every client’s assets from grey market losses, theft and shrinkage.

“Supply-chain sustainability is a key differentiator for any business looking to enhance issues affecting the organization’s supply chain or logistics network in terms of environmental, risk, and waste costs. There is a growing need for integrating environmentally sound choices into supply-chain management, which TES has demonstrated during the audit process. TAPA is indeed proud of TES’s pursuit of supply chain security excellence, and we are sure that TES will continue to create outstanding value with its unique combination of security, value recovery and environmental expertise,” said Tony Lugg, TAPA APAC Chairman.

He added that, “As climate change is now one of the world’s most pressing challenges, TAPA would recommend to all members to adhere to sustainability programs and is confident that TES is in a position to help with the reduction of carbon emissions in the years to come.”

To date, TES is the one of  few IT lifecycle service provider companies in the world to meet the FSR Audit’s stringent requirements. As a company that prides itself on thorough security procedures and compliance, TAPA’s recertification serves as yet another indication that TES is dedicated to safeguarding information technology devices and associated data at the highest possible level.

“Investing in compliance and standards keeps TES at the forefront of the security and sustainability drivers in our industry,” said Gary Steele, TES’s Chief Executive Officer.  “Looking ahead, transportation security is only going to become more complex as emerging threats are introduced. These real world challenges need real world solutions and we are proud to be a part of TAPA as TAPA works to help to solve those challenges.”

Disclosure: TES is a member of TAPA APAC.
