What is CTPAT / C-TPAT?

CTPAT/C-TPAT is the Customs & Trade Partnership Against Terrorism. It is a voluntary program between the Importer and Customs to protect our borders. Customs realizes that border security is a monumental task and is enlisting the trade community to assist in being "on patrol".

CTPAT/C-TPAT recognizes that Customs can provide the highest level of security through close cooperation with the owners of the supply chain, importers, carriers, brokers, warehouse operators and manufacturers. Through this initiative, Customs is asking businesses to guarantee the integrity of their security practices and communicate their security guidelines to their business partners within the supply chain.

Allow us to help you become CTPAT/C-TPAT compliant!
The main goal of CTPAT/C-TPAT is to make a more secure and efficient supply chain through partnership. Customs has to adapt to the changing industry and therefore, requires the assistance of private industry to ensure increased vigilance throughout the supply chain. Customs recognizes that just as it protects the trade and our U.S. borders, businesses must ensure that their brands, employees, and customers are protected. Customs understands that a safe and regulated supply chain is the most critical part of keeping our country safe. Customs is seeking a strong anti-terrorism partnership with the trade community through instilling CTPAT. In turn, they want to work closely with companies whose good business practices ensure supply chain security and compliance with trade laws.
