ctpatWhat Is C-TPAT and Is C-TPAT Certification Right for You?

What is C-TPAT?  The acronym stands for Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism.  It’s a voluntary supply chain security program led by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. 

The program started shortly after 9-11, when the U.S. Government stepped up border inspections of imported goods.  These inspections delay processing of imports from 1 to 2 weeks, slowing the importer’s supply chain and cash cycle.  To date, about 4,300 importers that want to avoid these Customs delays and support efforts to secure the country’s borders have completed C-TPAT certification.

Is C-TPAT certification right for you?    This paper may help you decide by reviewing the benefits of C-TPAT certification for importers.
