Whether you’re considering CTPAT for the first time or established veterans of the voluntary trade program, you’re aware that your operation runs on two things:
security and efficiency.

You also know that trusted trader programs are key to establishing a transparent supply chain and building your brand’s reputation in your industry.

CTPAT membership raises the profile of your brand, from your workforce to your customers, but let’s be honest – it can be a drain on resources and distract your team from their core functions. That is why we’re dedicating our decades of experience in CTPAT and CBP operations to relieve the burden on CTPAT member companies, dedicated to optimizing their supply chains. Our team of experts are former CTPAT Supply Chain Security Specialists, former Acting Directors of the program and have performed hundreds of domestic and foreign validations around the globe for every entity type.

We’ve mastered the ins and outs of the CTPAT program. Let us guide you on your CTPAT journey while you focus on your day-to-day priorities.
