GP Logistics is a proud certified and validated C-TPAT member since October 2012.

C-TPAT, Customs -Trade Partnership Against Terrorism, was created after the tragic events that occurred on September 11, 2001. The partnership develops and adopts measures that add security but do not have a chilling effect on trade, a difficult balancing act. Today, more than 10,000 certified partners that span the gamut of the trade community have been accepted into the program. These include U.S. importers, U.S./Canada highway carriers; U.S./Mexico highway carriers; rail and sea carriers; licensed U.S. Customs brokers; U.S. marine port authority/terminal operators; U.S. freight consolidators; ocean transportation intermediaries and non‐operating common carriers; Mexican and Canadian manufacturers; and Mexican long‐haul carriers. These 10,000‐plus companies account for over 50 percent (by value) of what is imported into the United States.

The United States Customs Service has made available many publications that explain this voluntary supply chain security program based on recommendation of the World Customs Organization. These publications can be retrieved by accessing the Customs website, at www.cbp.gov and then clicking trade and the import icon.

A program video is available at http://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/video-gallery/2014/04/c-tpat-introduction-video.

How it works

When they join the anti‐terror partnership, companies sign an agreement to work with CBP to protect the supply chain, identify security gaps, and implement specific security measures and best practices. Additionally, partners provide CBP with a security profile outlining the specific security measures the company has in place. Applicants must address a broad range of security topics and present security profiles that list action plans to align security throughout their supply chain.

C‐TPAT members are considered low‐risk and are therefore less likely to be examined. This designation is based on a company's past compliance history, security profile, and the validation of a sample international supply chain.

An emerging focus: Mutual Recognition Arrangements

CBP has numerous Mutual Recognition Arrangements with other countries. The goal of these arrangements is to link the various international industry partnership programs so that together they create a unified and sustainable security posture that can assist in securing and facilitating global cargo trade.

The goal of aligning partnership programs is to create a system whereby all participants in an international trade transaction are approved by the customs function as observing specified standards in the secure handling of goods and relevant information. C‐TPAT signed its first Mutual Recognition Arrangement with New Zealand in June 2007, and since that time has signed similar arrangements with South Korea, Japan, Jordan, Canada, the EU, Taiwan, Israel, and Mexico.
