TAPA 2018 sponsors
September 2018, Transport (Industry), Associations

There were six companies sponsoring the TAPA conference in July this year. During the conference they all had a few minutes to talk about what they do to enhance security in the logistics business. A brief summary of what the sponsors had on show is below.

Bridgewater Logistics

Bridgewater Logistics was a repeat sponsor at the TAPA conference. The company’s Richard Venter says Bridgewater’s display included brochures on the logistics company as well as its new secure parking site/truck stop in Pomona, Kempton Park. Visitors to the display were also able to obtain other promotional information.

He adds, “The response following our presentation was overwhelming with a number of visitors stopping by to discuss our offering.”

In addition, he says the company found the conference to be very informative with excellent speakers from delegates and sponsors alike. “Of particular interest to us were the presentations by Lawrence Brown, and Paul Linders from TAPA EMEA that included the new EMEA Standard for Parking Security Requirements (PSR) 2017 – EMEA Region.

“We launched our Bridgewater Parking Business on the same day as the conference, and after visiting the specified requirements for TAPA Certification, found that there was precious little that we had to do to get certification, and become what will probably be one of the first TAPA Certified Truck Stops / Vehicle Parking Sites in the country. We have subsequently done everything required to comply and will be going for certification within the next month.

“Overall, we believe it was a very successful conference.”

Smartlock’s stand highlighted four solutions the company offers:

1. E-Seal.

2. Padlock.

3. GLAM Lock (a lock that is integrated on the truck solutions (8-ton, 16-ton, roller doors and curtain rails).

4. Smart Key.

The company’s Johan Fick says Smartlock demonstrated the functionality of the locks by creating and editing schedules and showing the delegates how the sequence works for the locking solution.

“Smart Lock gained good visibility with it being the second year that we attended,” Fick added. “We had more enquiries and interest shown in our products and had the opportunity to present our solution which left a good impression on the delegates. The TAPA conference is a great platform to build relationships with key players in the cargo and logistics industries.”

He additionally notes: “The main focus of this year’s TAPA conference was on risk management for your fleets and the value of systems to ensure business success and continuity. An overview of crime and

how it affects society was presented in the

context of the bigger picture of the

South African environment, along with challenxges, including criminal motivators and the psychological effects on the population.”
