Cargo crime in South Africa is a major and growing concern for international manufacturers and logistics service providers.

In the 18 months to June 2022, the TAPA EMEA Intelligence System (TIS) recorded 2,670 cargo thefts across all 9 South African provinces, including 2,236 truck hijackings.

Only 3.4% of these crimes reported financial loss data but these incidents alone produced losses of:

  • 577 million rand (€31.7m) of goods stolen from supply chains in 546 days
  • 109 million rand (€5.9m) – biggest single cargo theft
  • 17,264,794 rand (€947,862) – average loss for major cargo crimes of 1.8m rand (€100K) or more
  • 6,344,897 rand (€348,344)
Our conference takes place in Gauteng province, the region for over 50% of all cargo thefts reported to TAPA EMEA. It will enhance your understanding of the security risks impacting supply chains in South Africa and highlight solutions which contribute to supply chain resilience.

This event is free of charge for TAPA EMEA members to attend and available to non-members for a delegate fee of 1,800 rand per delegate.

Additionally, on 8 March 2023, TAPA EMEA is also offering supply chain security stakeholders the opportunity to register for a morning session providing an Introduction to TAPA EMEA’s Supply Chain Security Standards.

We look forward to welcoming you.
