Advantech Certified to fight Terrorism

June 17, 2013 - Advantech has been certified for C-TPAT (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism ).  C-TPAT is a joint effort between the United States government and businesses involved in importing goods into the United States. It is part of the ever evolving nature of the United States Customs and recognizes that border security will be much more efficient if U.S. Customs involves businesses in the process of securing and inspecting cargo.

At program launch, C-TPAT had seven major importers as members; today, more than 10,000 certified partners have been accepted into the program.  It’s a great opportunity for Advantech to join C-TPAT to improve the security of supply chains pursuant to C-TPAT criteria and also enjoy the benefits from this program.

Some of the C-TPAT member benefits include, reduced number of inspections and reduced border wait times and self-policing and self-monitoring of security activities.

Advantech will continue working with U.S. Customs to protect the international supply chain, identify security gaps, and implement specific security measures and best practices.
