Dear Import Supply-Chain Business Partner:

Our company is a proud participant of the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program. CTPAT is a voluntary, joint government-business initiative to build cooperative relationships that strengthen the overall supply chain and border security. Every company involved, from manufacturing to the final receiver, will be impacted by the ongoing efforts to create a more secure global trading system.

As C-TPAT participants, our company must assess, improve, and communicate more comprehensive safety procedures for cargo security. US Customs & Border Protection (“CBP”) requires a complete self-assessment that encompasses procedural security, physical security, personnel security, education and awareness training, access control, manifest and conveyance security issues. As part of the process, CBP requires that our business supply chain partners are knowledgeable of the benefits and requirements of the C-TPAT program.

For additional information about the C-TPAT program, please see the below link:

We require that our business partners sign the Acknowledgment of Receipt and Supply Chain Security Questionnaire.
