CTPAT: ANL's Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism

Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism

CTPAT is a voluntary program initiated by the Department of Homeland Security in the USA under the care of U.S. Customs and Boarder Protection, the program allows CBP to work with the trade community to strengthen security across the international supply chains. CBP provide the highest level of cargo security through close cooperation with the principle stakeholders of the international supply chain such as importers, carriers, consolidators, licensed customs brokers, and manufacturers.

From its inception in November 2001, CTPAT has more than 11,400 certified partners today with partners that include U.S. importers/exporters, U.S./Canada highway carriers, U.S./Mexico highway carriers, rail and sea carriers, licensed U.S. Customs brokers, U.S. marine port authority/terminal operators, U.S. freight consolidators, ocean transportation intermediaries and non‐operating common carriers, Mexican and Canadian manufacturers, and Mexican long‐haul carriers, all of whom account for over 52 percent (by value) of cargo imported into the U.S.

ANL is proud to be accredited by CBP as a validated partner of the CTPAT program since 2004, our security protocol continues to meet or exceeding the minimum security criterial of the CBP guidelines.

With the support of the Management, the team in ANL is fully committed to the execution of our security protocol and will continue working with partners that share the same commitment to strengthen the international supply chain.
