Furniture World Magazine
U.S. Customs has implemented a new Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program to increase supply chain and border security. Globe Express Services (GES) is pleased to announce its enrollment in this voluntary program as a way to play a more active role in the war against terrorism.
As part of the enrollment process, GES has completed a “Supply Chain Security Profile Questionnaire.” Currently GES is conducting a detailed self-assessment of supply chain security including physical, procedural and personnel issues. In addition, C-TPAT participants are required to develop, implement and maintain a program to increase supply chain security throughout their organization. Participants must comply with C-TPAT guidelines and those rules must be conveyed to all other companies in the supply chain.
The benefits for Globe Express Services and its customers include expedited processing of imports at U.S. ports of entry, which could reduce overall customs clearance time. GES is committed to fulfilling all obligations of the C-TPAT program and considers supply chain security a top priority.
Additional information about C-TPAT can be obtained at the U.S. Customs website, www.customs.gov.
