TAPA, the Transported Asset Protection Association, is running a free-of-charge virtual conference next week to examine the impact of Covid and the risks to supply chain resilience.

The event, organised by the association’s Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region, runs from 8-12 November and features three-hour daily sessions discussing the challenges for shippers and their freight transport and logistics providers. Presentations will begin daily from 11am CET until 2pm.

Some 850 delegates have already signed up to the event, which launches with IATA’s head of cargo, Brendan Sullivan. Other grandees presenting include Alan Murphy, CEO of Sea-Intelligence, and Raluca Marian, director EU advocacy at the International Road Transport Union, along with experts from Amazon, Europol, McKinsey, the port of Rotterdam, criminologists, cyber security specialists and insurers.

“Supply chains and all their critical suppliers have just been through the most challenging two years most of us can ever remember, and the disruption of the pandemic continues to raise so many questions relating to supply chain resilience as we head into 2022,” said  Thorsten Neumann, president & CEO of TAPA EMEA.

“The speakers at our virtual conference will discuss many of these topics and help to raise awareness and offer guidance on what lies ahead, as well as looking at the growing threat of cargo theft to virtually all types of products as they transit through supply chains.

“As this is such a game-changing time for all concerned, we are pleased to be able to offer this unique and free of charge opportunity for freight and logistics providers and supply chain specialists, manufacturers and other connected sectors to join us to listen to the outstanding group of presenters we are bringing together.”
