Bolloré Logistics Receives Tapa-A Certification for Its Milan Warehousing Facility

June 20th, 2018

Bolloré Logistics has obtained the TAPA FSR A certification for its Milan-Pantigliate logistics platform in Italy.

The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) FSR Level A is awarded to sites with the highest degree of security requirements in storage services. This internationally recognized safety standard ensures that the Bolloré Logistics Milan warehouse meets all the conditions of protection of goods against acts of theft and crime related to freight. It is an important and competitive asset to meet the expectations of customers in sensitive sectors such as fashion, luxury and healthcare.

Bolloré Logistics is implanted in six sites in Italy. It offers a wide range of international transport and supply chain services and solutions. The Milan-Pantigliate site specializes in the fashion and luxury sectors with a set of specific equipment adapted to the industry. Thus, a dedicated and trained team supports labeling and repackaging of articles by destination site. The products are then transported on hangers (GOH) mostly leaving for Asia. Computer systems integrated with own customers IT provide monitoring of the entire process in real time and end-to-end.

Additional arrangements have been made to enhance the security of the site, such as:

  • Construction of a "high value cage" inside the warehouse
  • Set up of a daily guard post at the entrance of the site providing access control
  • Implementation of access management restricted to the offices and store via identification badges with individualized and nominated access rights
  • Strengthening of video surveillance and anti-intrusion devices

“Improvements have been made both in terms of equipment and safety and training processes for teams to ensure the maximum security of the goods of our high-end fashion customers, although they benefit also to other stored goods. They are essential to meet the current requirements of customers, and prepare us to increase volumes in our warehouse by 15 to 20% this year,” explains Luigi Brunetti, Managing Director of Bolloré Logistics Italy, whose fashion sector counts for 33% of activities.
