ITX Logistics Receives C-TPAT Certification
C-TPAT is a joint initiative between government and business designed to protect the security of cargo entering the United States while improving the flow of trade. C-TPAT requires importers to take steps to assess, evolve and communicate new practices that ensure tighter security of cargo and enhanced security throughout the entire supply chain. In return, their goods and conveyances will receive expedited processing into the United States.
The potential benefits from C-TPAT certification is a measurable increase in the speed of freight and a reduction of fees. These benefits to our customers are assisted by:
- Access to the Free and Secure Trade (FAST) lanes at land borders
- The ability to move to the front of inspection lines
- A lesser potential of CBP examinations and an exemption from Stratified Exams (SEs)
- Shorter wait times at the border
- And much more!
