ProTrans International Inc. (ProTrans) recently announced that it achieved C-TPAT Certification from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

“On behalf of CBP, I am pleased to welcome your company as a certified partner in the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT),” said a representative from the CBP. “By participating with CBP, you are making a vital contribution to help us secure our borders and ensure the continued free flow of international trade.”

C-TPAT is a program that aims to safeguard the trade industry from terrorists by developing and adopting measures that add security. More than 10,000 certified partners have been accepted into the program.

“ProTrans employees have worked tirelessly to protect the supply chain, identify security gaps, and implement specific security measures and best practices to ensure our compliance with C-TPAT requirements,” said Shawn Masters, vice president of operations. “We are pleased to accept certification as a reward of the effort we have put forth, and will continue to put forth.”

John Woods, executive vice president of sales and marketing, added, “As an organization, we hold ourselves to the same standard of quality and accountability that our customers do. I commend our employees on achieving this certification through their commitment to safety.”

ProTrans’ C-TPAT Certification – 3PL category – was approved for all North American centers. The Quality Assurance and Operations departments work with these centers on a weekly basis to discuss on-going compliance.

You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
