It has been a little less than ten years since the development and implementation of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program. What began with seven charter members has now expanded into a partnership program of over 10,000 participants, covering all entities involved in the global supply chain. Although growth of the program over the years has been impressive, with over 810,000 U.S. importers1 and over 11,000 active U.S. customs brokers alone, there is still great opportunity to increase participation in the program.
Supply chain visibility is an appealing yet elusive capability for most companies. While most recognize the significant benefits that would accrue from comprehensive visibility, few have made it a reality across their global operations. Part of the problem companies seem to have in embracing and implementing visibility is the lack of a comprehensive definition or firm understanding of the transformational potential. In this podcast, World Trade and GT Nexus will discuss the definitions and opportunities as well as how new cloud technology platforms are driving significant value to major companies today.
