Introduced in 2001, the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) is a voluntary, incentive based partnership between the U.S. government and the private sector, focused on improving the security of supply chains with respect to terrorism. Companies who want to achieve C-TPAT compliance and certification must have a documented process for mitigating risk in their global supply chain. This categorizes companies as low risk, resulting in expedited processing of their cargo, including reduced inspections and penalties.
DHL Resilience360 provides an integrated platform for the management and execution of the C-TPAT Five Step Risk Assessment Process. A comprehensive set of reporting and analysis tools allows companies to evaluate the overall level of C-TPAT compliance among their supply chain partners, and identify the nature and severity of vulnerabilities or compliance risks at partner sites. That information facilitates the effective planning and prioritization of follow-up activities, audits and corrective actions.
