Satco Products Inc. has been awarded Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism Certification, which gives the company high security clearance to expedite shipping from overseas.
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. C-TPAT allows the U.S. customs and Border Protection (CBP) to provide the highest level of cargo security through close cooperation with the ultimate owners of the international supply chain such as importers, carriers and manufacturers. Through this initiative, CBP is asking businesses to ensure the integrity of their security practices and communicate and verify the security guidelines of their business partners within the supply chain through the first worldwide supply chain security initiative.
Satco sought this certification to show its commitment to the safety and security of its ports and to provide customer service by avoiding potential shipment delays.
