The Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism offers benefits for importers, customs brokers, warehouse operators, carriers, foreign manufacturers and suppliers, and others that meet specified criteria for strengthening the security of their international supply chains. Some of these benefits are provided by CBP, such as fewer cargo examinations and shorter border wait times. Many others stem from the rigorous internal review process companies conduct when applying and the ongoing measures they take as active participants; e.g., remedying noncompliance in their import processes and lowering costs by improving operational efficiencies.
ST&R effectively guides companies through the CTPAT process, including risk assessments that highlight and resolve issues prior to the significant government scrutiny that accompanies a formal application, completing the detailed supply chain profile questionnaires, and the certification, validation, and revalidation processes. ST&R can also assist with the design, development, and implementation of the CTPAT Trade Compliance-required risk assessment and self-testing plan as well as periodic monitoring control testing.
