DHL Global Forwarding has been re-validated in the US government's Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) programme, in the wake of a security audit by the C-TPAT Supply Chain Security Specialists of the company's facilities located in the Americas region.

Each visit included an examination of the firm's supply chain security and a review of all its relevant policies and procedures, and warehouse operations.



The programme, administered by the US Customs and Border Protection, is designed to safeguard the security of goods entering US territory while speeding up trade flows in and out of the country, reported London's Air Cargo News.



Cargo imported by a certified company is placed in a preferred category and even if the shipment is selected to be inspected, the process is faster if the shipment is being imported by a CTPAT certified importer.



All of this translates into reduced inspection fees, customs fees, cargo fees, increased speed to market and an immediate positive effect on a company's bottom line.



'At DHL Global Forwarding, compliance with C-TPAT and all other global security programmes are essential to the way we do business,' said DHL Global Forwarding Americas chief executive Bill Meahl.
