Supply Chain Security
The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) offers trade-related businesses an opportunity to play an active role in the war against terrorism. By participating in this first worldwide supply chain security initiative, your company can realize a more secure and expeditious supply chain for your employees, suppliers, and customers. C-TPAT was founded in November 2001, aimed at strengthening the U.S. Supply chain and to enforce security at the borders. Come 2018, C-TPAT has over 11,400 certified partners. By joining the list of approved clients from C-TPAT, an importer, exporter or carrier will have privileges courtesy of the CBP. Also, having the approval from C-TPAT means that your shipments will be regarded as low risk. It will grant your shipments major time savings at border crossings as they won’t be checked as much as the shipments that are not registered with C-TPAT. Importers, exporters or carriers who have registered with C-TPAT must follow the shipment packing guidelines to avail these benefits. One of the most important is the ISO 17712 high-security seal that must be used to secure the shipments.
