DSV is a Customs Trade Partner Against Terrorism. (C-TPAT), something we take very seriously.
What is the goal of C-TPAT?
Shortly following September 11, 2001 US Customs implemented a participation program known as C-TPAT.
The goal is to create an environment which continuously certifies, maintains and evaluates the security / supply chain within a given company. The benefit of this is obvious in regards to security in our transportation industry.
Added benefits can come with expedited release of cargo, and/or a reduced number of examinations, which may be directly linked to a company’s C-TPAT documentation. The principal goal of a validation for Customs is to ensure that the company’s C-TPAT security profile is reliable, accurate, and effective.
DSV is a partner in this co-operation.
