Resources C-TPAT

The Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) is a voluntary program designed with national security in mind. A well documented supply chain and security procedures are the cornerstones of this program. Business practices employed by your suppliers, manufacturers, transportation providers, customs brokers, etc. are documented and validated. Implementing practices that prevent entry of unauthorized cargo as well as isolating potential weakness in the supply chain are required to attain C-TPAT certification.

We are C-TPAT certified and have been revalidated on different occasions since our inclusion in 2003. Our commitment is to adopt the most recent security processes and to encourage those companies engaged in international trade to participate. C-TPAT continues to evolve and certified companies will receive benefits in the form of expedient release, fewer examinations and preference when mitigating ISF penalties.
