TAPA A certification for DHL Express Bahrain Hub announced at BIAS 2010
Singapore, 21 January 2010: DHL, the world’s leading express company, has once again achieved the maximum score of 100% in the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) security audit for its network operations in Bahrain. The DHL Express Bahrain Hub has received the highest security international certification, continuing the company’s outstanding TAPA certification history in the Middle East while setting new records in security standards.
DHL announced this on the back of its participation at the inaugural Bahrain International Airshow (BIAS) 2010 where the company will showcase its A300B4 aircraft. “DHL was the first Express and Logistics Company in the region to receive the TAPA certification in 2006. The high scores are a testament to the continued importance of Bahrain to our network operations, showcasing world-class capabilities,” said Garry Kemp, Managing Director, DHL Express Middle East, North Africa and Turkey.
“The BIAS offers an excellent platform to reinforce Bahrain’s position as a gateway to the Middle East and a key aviation and logistics for the region,” said Garry Kemp, “DHL’s Middle East Air Network headquartered in Bahrain leverages the Kingdom’s excellent air connectivity. In the region, DHL operates ten aircraft serving at least 14 cities including Dubai, Jeddah and Kuwait.”
The company recently enhanced its air cargo network with the introduction of highly-efficient Boeing 777 freighter aircraft which will not only boost the company’s on-time performance but will increase environmental efficiency. DHL adheres to high security standard operational procedures with air carriers and supply chain partners to ensure freight is treated securely throughout the supply chain.
In Bahrain, DHL has been growing its share of Time Definite International (TDI) Express services fuelled by the region’s growth in the financial and automotive sectors and the need for companies to deliver new products to the markets and grow their business footprint within the region. With a substantial network and reach across the world, the aim is to make global importing and exporting more convenient and timely than ever before.
To meet the increasing demand for fast delivery services, DHL EXPRESS 9:00 and 12:00, part of DHL’s TDI service portfolio have been introduced or expanded in 54 countries in EEMEA, to include 17 countries in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey (MENAT). DHL EXPRESS 9:00 and 12:00 now have an additional 290 lanes from MENAT countries to Europe to cater to customers’ delivery and business needs.
DHL became the first express and logistics company to establish a presence in Bahrain in 1976 and has remained a pioneer in the Middle East logistics industry over the last 30 years through its portfolio of integrated logistics services, facilitated by an extensive air and road network.
