CFS has been C-TPAT certified since 2006. C-TPAT is the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism. It is a voluntary government-business initiative to build cooperative relationships that strengthen and improve overall international supply chain and U.S. border security. C-TPAT recognizes that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) can provide the highest level of cargo security only through close cooperation with the ultimate owners of the international supply chain such as importers, carriers, consolidators, licensed customs brokers, and manufacturers. When your shipments are handled by CFS, they require fewer cargo inspections when crossing border and if inspection is necessary, C-TPAT certification gives your shipments priority status for fewer delays and faster delivery.
