Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism


Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) is a joint initiative between U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and participating businesses. FedEx Trade Networks offers consulting services to help clients revamp their cargo security procedures for their personnel, facilities and supply chain partners in order to become certified. More and more companies are making cargo security their top priority by applying for C-TPAT certification, but they need help!

With extensive experience in cargo and workplace security and a portfolio of advisory services, FedEx Trade Networks Trade Services, Inc. can provide the consulting necessary to analyze your facilities, revamp your cargo security protocols and prepare the certification application. After certification, FedEx Trade Networks can also keep you up-to-date with changes through continued training and audits. C-TPAT certified companies are offered a variety of potential benefits:

  • Fewer shipment inspections.
  • Faster customs processing of your cargo at the border.
  • A more secure supply chain and a safer work environment.
  • Potential admission to other valuable CBP programs.
  • Access to the CBP database of approved C-TPAT vendors and partners.
  • A designated CBP account manager.
  • Dedicated commercial lanes where infrastructure permits.
