Overview

Now's the time to learn what’s new in the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) Program. A joint government-business initiative, C-TPAT was designed to build cooperative relationships that will strengthen international supply-chain and U.S.-border security.

C-TPAT member-certified importers, carriers, brokers, warehouse operators, and manufacturers work together to ensure the integrity of their security practices, communicate their security guidelines to business partners within the supply chain and verify the guidelines of those partners.

Love it or hate it, C-TPAT is here to stay. The bottom line is that all managers in the supply chain need to know and understand C-TPAT.
