FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Logistics Plus Receives CTPAT Partnership Renewal for 2021
This is the 13th straight year that Logistics Plus has been CTPAT approved by CBP.
ERIE, PA (January 6, 2021) – Logistics Plus Inc. (LP), a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics, and supply chain solutions, is pleased to share that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recently reviewed and renewed its Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) partnership status for 2021. CTPAT is a voluntary public-private sector partnership program which recognizes that CBP can provide the highest level of cargo security only through close cooperation with the principle stakeholders of the international supply chain such as importers, carriers, consolidators, licensed customs brokers, and manufacturers.
From its inception in November 2001, CTPAT continues to grow. Today, more than 11,400 certified partners spanning the gamut of the trade community have been accepted into the program. The partners include U.S. importers/exporters, U.S./Canada highway carriers; U.S./Mexico highway carriers; rail and sea carriers; licensed U.S. Customs brokers; U.S. marine port authority/terminal operators; U.S. freight consolidators; ocean transportation intermediaries and non‐operating common carriers; Mexican and Canadian manufacturers; and Mexican long‐haul carriers, all of whom account for over 52 percent (by value) of cargo imported into the U.S.
“By going through the rigorous CTPAT renewal process, Logistics Plus will continue to help shippers coordinate their cross-border moves with reduced CBP examinations, front of the line inspections, and shorter wait times at the border,” said Logistics Plus Compliance Department Manager Adam Mook. “Making sure our compliance standards meet or exceed the CTPAT annual requirements confirms that Logistics Plus is committed to security and protection for our customers and the entire supply chain.”

Logistics Plus provides consulting services for companies seeking to become CTPAT certified and validated.
