Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) certification is one way to bolster your supply chain security. C-TPAT is a collaborative government-business program designed to strengthen supply chain security. The partnership developed due to issues created by the events on Sept. 11. It is a system of regulations that monitors the global movement of goods in hopes of improving supply chain and border security.
Recently the National Association of Manufacturers held a seminar conducted by A.N. Deringer, a St. Albans, Vermont-based provider of international trade services, to explore the C-TPAT program and explain how certification can reduce supply chain related costs and cycle time.
