AirBridge Cargo (ABC), ’s first and largest international scheduled cargo airline, has joined the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) and subscribed to all security procedures as recommended by TAPA to underpin its commitment to the highest levels of customer service by using TAPA’s risk management tools.

TAPA is an association of security professionals and related business partners from technology companies who have come together for the purpose of addressing the emerging security threats that are common to the high-tech industry.
