Avaal recently announced the launch of its C-TPAT certification division that will act as a consulting service to logistics organizations that wish to become certified with USCBP (US Customs and Border Protection). C-TPAT (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism) is a voluntary partnership between CBP and the trade to secure the international supply chain. This is the latest initiative introduced by CBP and offers partners expedited processing of shipments and reduced delays when entering the US. As explained by Mr. Nagra of Avaal, C-TPAT certification can often be a tedious and frustrating process without the proper expertise. CBP requires organizations to meet certain operational standards before certification is granted. The conditions include full surveillance of the facility and sophisticated employee identification systems. Companies are also required to run routine checks of there equipment to ensure no hidden compartments are found that could accommodate illegal smuggling into the US. Furthermore certification also requires the installation of advanced GPS monitoring systems on all trucks and trailers transporting goods to the US. The list of requirements goes on and is quite extensive. More information on C-TPAT certification and its associated benefits can be obtained by contacting Avaal at 905-595-1313.
