Why Is Now the Right Time to Be CTPAT Certified?

a Whitepaper
It has been a little less than ten years since the development and implementation of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) program. What began with seven charter members has now expanded into a partnership program of over 10,000 participants, covering all entities involved in the global supply chain. Although growth of the program over the years has been impressive, with over 810,000 U.S. importers1 and over 11,000 active U.S. customs brokers alone, there is still great opportunity to increase participation in the program.

The CTPAT program, as defined by CBP, is a “voluntary government-business initiative to build cooperative relationships that strengthen and improve overall international supply chain and U.S. border security.” By participating in the program, companies provide a more secure and expeditious supply chain.
