The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program was initiated by U.S. authorities following the events of September 11, 2001. The goal is to combat terrorism as well as smuggling and human trafficking.

The supply chain is full of risks and the last thing any company wants is to have its name associated with illegal activity. As such, you need to be aware of the risks involved in international trade and identify where arms or drug smuggling, human trafficking, and so forth, are taking place.

Our course can be adapted to your business model. How can you reduce the risks in your supply chain, ensure the legitimacy of your business partners and secure your goods? All these questions will be answered.

With a focus on understanding the USCBP’s supply chain risk analysis expectations required by the C-TPAT program and how to integrate them into your business, this three-hour training session will help you become aware of these risks and explain how to avoid them.
