Should our business be C-TPAT Certified?

To be C-TPAT certified means that your business is concerned enough to be a responsible corporate entity and protect our US Borders. Most Importers, Freight Forwarders, Transportation Companies and Related Foreign Manufacturers these days are sending annual Supplier Questionnaires to evaluate the risk level of their business partners.  C-TPAT certification is becoming a security standard much like the ISO standard is for Quality.  Forward-thinking Executives are pursuing C-TPAT certification for the company and encouraging their Business Partners to do the same.  Not only does Certification secure the first tier of their Supply Chain, but it adds an increased level of trust and value to that relationship between the company and their C-TPAT certified Business Partners.  Once certified, you will join the parters and ranks of an elite group of vetted and secure Importers and Partners within Customs and Border Protection’s  C-TPAT program.

Is C-TPAT certification one of your company KSO’s?

Principal Consultant

I understand the organization and dynamics of small to mid-size companies and how stressful it can be to galvanize employees and earn their buy-in for a “standardized” certification. The best part part of my job is demonstrating to my clients just how customized we can make C-TPAT procedures and how easily we can implement them into existing protocols. Call or email us today. We are here to help!
