As your partner, Dangerous Goods is committed to global supply chain security and has agreed to make a vital contribution to help secure the United States' borders and ensure the continued free flow of international trade. C-TPAT is the first worldwide initiative in which participating organizations fully cooperate with U.S. Customs to establish acceptable security practices throughout the entire supply chain. Eligible companies must submit a detailed application and conduct a comprehensive self-assessment of their supply chain security procedures using the C-TPAT guidelines.
“Obtaining C-TPAT certification validates that our internal operational processes and facilities nationwide are efficient, secure and compliant. Completing the comprehensive processes to achieve C-TPAT certification status demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing customers, now and in the future, with not only the industry’s most innovative global packaging solutions but also the highest quality service and security measures available.”
- Larry Rydzewski, Berlin Packaging Chief Operations Officer
Participation in the program provides companies with the assurance of a safe, secure, and expeditious supply chain. C-TPAT members benefit directly by reducing the number of physical inspections and documentation reviews when crossing borders, helping to dramatically decrease the time required when passing through customs.
Obtaining C-TPAT certification also offers businesses an opportunity to take an active role in improving national security.
