C-TPAT – Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism

Quote from Acting Director of the C-TPAT program, “the application you submitted was the strongest I have ever seen. . .”

C-TPAT is a voluntary government-business initiative to build cooperative relationships that strengthen and improve overall international supply chain and U.S. border security.

Don Greenwood & Associates are experienced C-TPAT consultants.
We have a full library of procedures, training materials, and model application documents that enables us to be cost effective for corporations seeking membership.  We begin by helping companies understand whether or not the benefits of C-TPAT are worth the time and energy expended in obtaining certification.   C-TPAT is not for everyone.  However, membership is often advised especially when requested by important business partners.   In the past 24 months, we have succeeded in getting C-TPAT certification for U. S. Importers and Foreign Manufacturers in both Canada and Mexico.

One Assistant Director of the C-TPAT program described an application we developed as “the strongest application I have ever seen”.  In June 2014, we submitted a C-TPAT application for a chemical manufacturer that gained certification and approval in one day.

Please give us a call if you need to explore the advantages and disadvantages of seeking C-TPAT membership.
