Schmitz reefers Tapa ready

Hanover, Germany: Schmitz Cargobull is offering a factory-fitted equipment package certified to Transported Asset Protection Association standards.

Following confirmation of conformity by the independent testing institute DQS, the certificate was handed over at the IAA Transport show in Hanover.

The security equipment on Schmitz Cargobull S.KO Cool trailers meets the requirements of the Transported Asset Protection Association’s TSR1 standard, the highest requirement level according to the association for high-value goods.

The Transported Asset Protection Association is an organisation made up of manufacturers, logistics 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.

In order to meet the standard 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 Schmitz Cargobull’s telematics.

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,” Volker Flatau, head of product Llne cool freight, Schmitz Cargobull, says.

“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.”
