Purolator International announces its partnership with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), a component of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, as a Certified Partner in its Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program. Purolator International is the leading provider of U.S. - Canada logistics services and subsidiary of Canada’s leading integrated parcel and freight delivery services provider, Purolator Inc.
C-TPAT, a voluntary U.S. government-business initiative, and the country’s first worldwide supply chain security program, was implemented to build cooperative relationships that strengthen and improve the international supply chain and U.S. border security. Through C-TPAT, U.S. Customs and Border Protection is working with logistics and international supply chain businesses to provide the highest level of cargo security for the United States.
As a Certified Partner, Purolator International will continue to ensure that appropriate international supply chain security measures are consistent with C-TPAT guidelines. Purolator will also work closely with its own business partners to develop new security processes consistent with C-TPAT guidelines. With the partnership, Purolator International will receive C-TPAT benefits including reduced cargo exams, professional training and more.
“We are very pleased to have received C-TPAT certification, an important U.S. initiative created to ensure cargo security measures for our country,” said John Costanzo, President Purolator International. “Purolator International works with U.S. businesses to deliver goods to and from Canada and is proud to be working alongside the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to help our customers safely conduct business with its Canadian neighbor to build a more secure and more efficient global trade environment.”
