The certification was awarded to the Dubai Country Office, Hub and Gateway with a score of 98.86% - the highest recorded among the DHL network in the Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa region. In addition, DHL's Al Quoz Service Centre, Saharjah Service Centre and the Dubai Airport Free Zone Express Logistics Centre and Service Centre both received the TAPA B certification reaching a score of 99%. The TAPA certifications were awarded to DHL in recognition of the high security standards being practiced by the world's leading express and logistics company in the UAE.
"As the first express and logistics provider in the Middle East to receive the highly sought-after TAPA A certification in 2005, we have once again proved our dedication to continuously improving our services for maximum customer benefit. DHL's investment into enhancing security standards contributes to a better and safer local, regional and global service offering for our customers," said Janet Jweihan, General Manager of DHL UAE.
The global security policies followed by Deutsche Post World Net, the parent company of DHL, such as security training for staff and up-to-date security measures at its facilities, have helped with the certification process for DHL UAE. The TAPA A and B certifications which have been awarded in turn offer high added-value to the transport and logistics processes and services of DHL UAE.
There are now six DHL TAPA-certified facilities in the UAE, including the Abu Dhabi Country Office and Service Centre (TAPA B) and the Jebel Ali Free Zone Service Centre (TAPA A).
