URS assists importers, manufacturers and trucking companies who wish to become compliant to US Customs requirements under the Customs_Trade Partnership Against Terrorism. C_TPAT seeks to enhance security measures across a company’s entire supply chain by compelling close cooperation among its constituent entities, from importers, brokers, and warehouse operators to carriers and foreign manufacturers and suppliers.
C_TPAT 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.
URS advisors have successfully guided importers, freight forwarders, manufacturers and trucking service providers toward C_TPAT participation.
